Open Terminal in Finder Current Location

As an avid Mac Terminal user, you may have noticed that there is no option to open the Terminal in Finder App's current location, sure this is something that can help you save a lot of time.

If you are looking for an easy way to achieve this (without writing your own Automation Script) you can try installing the OpenInTerminal application.

Github link:

You can even install it using the homebrew package manager.

brew install openinterminal

Once you install it, make sure to enable it under Privacy & Security -> Extensions -> Finder

Open In Finder Extension

You will see an icon on the Finder App Window which you can select Terminal, this will open the current directory location in the Terminal app.
