Finder Toolbar Items
Did you know that you can add applications to your Finder toolbar? This comes in as a very handy shortcut because you can add context aware action scripts that do common stuff for you. Today I’m sharing 3 of them that help me through my days.

- OpenInTextMate – As it says, it opens the currently selected files (or if non selected the currently opened folders) in TextMate.
- OpenTerminalHere – This is the most useful. It opens Terminal.app with the current folder.
You can download them here. It’s a good idea to extract them into your applications folder like so:
