I found recently this amazing Mac application called Spark that allows you to define global shortcuts keys (hotkeys). Here are some utility scripts I conjured to make my life easier.
Copy the current Finder path to the clipboard.
tell application "Finder" set theWindow to window 1 set thePath to (POSIX path of (target of theWindow as alias)) set the clipboard to thePath end tell
Open an iTerm in the current Finder location.
tell application "Finder" if ((count the window) < 1) then return end if set theWindow to window 1 set thePath to (POSIX path of (target of theWindow as alias)) my openTerminal(thePath) end tell on openTerminal(path) tell application "iTerm" activate if not (exists current terminal) then launch session "Default Session" end if set mysession to current session of current terminal select mysession set cmd to "pushd " & path write mysession text cmd end tell end openTerminal
