If you want button on Finder’s toolbar to open iTerm2, here is app to do that. Just drag it into the toolbar of any Finder window.
When activating it, it will open a new session. If iTerm2 is already open it always opens the new tabs at the beginning. After that it goes to the path of the selected folder or file in finder.
You can make that app by self:
- Open «AppleScript Editor»
- In a new document, paste the AppleScript code you’ll find below
- Save the script in
/Applications/Utilities, name it
cd to, use the file format «Application» (do not select «run only» if you want to be able to change the script later on)
- Give the script a nice icon if you want
- Drag the script you saved in
/Applications/Utilitiesinto the toolbar of any Finder window
