Open project in finder from Xcode

After being accustomed to the ease of opening terminal from Xcode, I created few more shortcuts for all my favorite Xcode users. One of them is Open in the finder with single shortcut from anywhere in Xcode.

YES! A Shortcut to open current project in finder

This is how you do it. It’s a one time setup. Just like you did it for Opening terminal

  1. Create a 2 line shell script and give the file execute permission.
  2. Go to Xcode Preferences.
  3. Add a Behavior in Xcode. Name it and give a shortcut key.
  4. On the right side details pane check the Run option.
  5. From the adjacent drop-down menu choose the script you just saved in step 1.

Script:

#!/bin/bash
open .

Command to give execute permission:

chmod +x /path/to/the/open_in_finder.sh

If you are lazy like me here’s the gist, download and use it: https://gist.github.com/itscoderslife/a671519577ac93fca55a506be7f2247a

Hope this is helpful.
