Terminal Plugin for Quicksilver¶
The Terminal plugin allows Quicksilver to interact with the OS X Terminal; run commands and shell scripts, open directories in Terminal and more.
This action takes any script in Quicksilver's first pane (.sh, .pl, .command, .php, .py, .rb) and runs it in a Shell. An indirect argument is optional, meaning you can run any script with an argument by inputting text in Quicksilver's third pane. This differs from the 'Run in Terminal […]' action in that it runs the script in a Shell, without opening a new Terminal window.
Run in Terminal […]
The Run in Terminal […] action can be used on script files (for example, php, pl, sh, py files) to run these files as scripts in a new Terminal window. The action supports an optional extra argument, entered in Quicksilver's 3rd pane. This differs from the 'run […]' action in that it opens a Terminal window, as opposed to running the script in a Shell.
Run Command in Shell
Runs the item in Quicksilver's first pane in a shell, without launching
Terminal. The item in Quicksilver's first pane should be a string (entered in
Text Mode) of your desired command. If the command returns an item (for
ls returns a list of files and folders) they are returned to
Quicksilver as text.
Run a Text Command in Terminal
Similar to the 'Run Command in Shell' action, but opens a new Terminal window and runs the command in the new window.
Open Directory in Terminal, Open Parent Directory in Terminal
These two actions open the folder or file selected in Quicksilver's first pane in Terminal. The name of the action depends on whether a folder or file is selected in Quicksilver's first pane.
Show Man Page
The 'Show Man Page' action can be run on any executable file (typically found
/usr/local/bin). It opens a new window with the 'man' page
for the selected executable.
Bash Command History
This Catalog Preset, found under
'Plugins > Bash Command History' adds your bash history to the Quicksilver
catalog (more accurately, it adds the contents of
~/.bash_history to your
