cd to is a fast mini-application that opens a Terminal.app window with the path set to the frontmost Finder window. This app is designed to be placed in the Finder window's toolbar. It's written in Objective-C and uses Apple Events, which makes it much faster than AppleScript applets that do the same thing. Support has been added for iTerm and xterm. It is shell agnostic, and works with bash, fish, or tcsh.

Very handy! I missed it when Lion was first released and my old version was incompatible; glad to have it back!

As a programmer/data munger, I spend a lot of time in the Terminal, and it's very nice to be able to navigate through a complex set of directories in Dropbox or what have you, then press a button and instantly be in a Terminal window at that directory. It's the little things in life that help so much.

Works fine on Lion. Added to Finder Toolbar, looks really useful.

Maybe his heirs wanted him to be forgotten so they changed his name to something appropriate. Who knows...

Version 2.5 yields the following on Snow Leopard:

printf %b '33c'; cd $'/Users/rcd/a/b/c/d'
Illegal variable name.

the snow leopard version is actually version 2.3. lion has a new api so it doesn't have to send shell commands (which cause problems when people aren't using the default shell of bash). If you are using tcsh on snowleopard you can try out a modified version of a plugin that was posted to the cdto issue tracker http://code.google.com/p/cdto/issues/detail?id=29

It doesn't seem to work when your default shell is tcsh

This is almost perfect, the one problem is that it doesn't work with Spaces. :-(

Very useful when you need to jump in and out of a terminal. I use it when I need to do diffs or run a python script etc.

Pretty neat... works as advised - Since I'm using the Terminal almost every day, it's really useful to me :)

Does not work if your shell script is tcsh! I get the error message "Illegal variable name."

Can you think of any reason this would open two terminals? (One to my home directory, the other to the directory Finder was open to.)

Opening a terminal window set to your home directory is Terminal.app's default behavior. Try opening Terminal.app and just closing the default window that pops up and then use this plugin to open a terminal window.

OpenTerminalHere.app does the same thing, so I don't consider this unexpected behavior.
