iTermLauncher for iTerm2

iTermLauncher is a handy console-based menu for quickly launching new terminals within the same window using iTerm2

This is intended for use with the iTerm2 Hotkey window, for launching additional terminals within that window. I personally use it to keep all my development servers or SSH sessions in reach, all within the hotkey window.

Once launched, the menu will remain running until you hit Control-C or Q. It will scan all the profiles you have configured (optionally filtering by tags), and let you choose one to launch within the window.

Installing iTermLauncher

Installation is simple. Just make sure you have node.js installed:

$ npm install itermlauncher

To run it, just run:

$ itermlauncher

Configuring iTermLauncher

Configuration is completely optional. iTermLauncher will find all your profiles and do the right thing.

There are a few configuration options, though. You can set the foreground/background colors, the width of the menu, an exported iTerm2 plist file, and the list of tags required for a profile to appear.

If you want to change things, create a JSON file in ~/.config/itermlauncher/config.json. This can look something like:

{
	"bg": "black",
	"fg": "yellow",
	"menuWidth": 50,
	"requiredTags": [
	    "Dev Servers"
	],
    "plistFilename": "/path/to/com.googlecode.iterm2.plist"
}

The one you most likely want to set is requiredTags. Any profile appearing in the menu must have all of the listed tags.

You can also specify a custom configuration file as an argument when running itermlauncher:

$ itermlauncher my-config.json

Configuring iTerm2

You'll want to make this easy and basically automatic. I suggest hooking this up to the hotkey window. Just follow these steps:

  1. Go into the iTerm2 profile editor and select the profile for your Hotkey window (or create it if it doesn't exist).
  2. In the General tab for the profile, set Command to: itermlauncher
  3. In the Keys settings, under Hotkey, make sure both checkboxes are checked, set your desired hotkey, and make sure it's mapped to the profile you just configured.
  4. Press the hotkey. Tada!
