A script for using iTerm2 instead of xterm on OSX


#1

The following seems to be working! First, make an iTerm2 profile called TagTime with the style you want. Put the following somewhere in your path, I called it iterm2-tagtime:

#!/bin/bash

osascript <<EOF
tell application "iTerm2"
  activate
  set newWindow to (create window with profile "TagTime" command "$@")

  delay 1
  repeat while exists newWindow
    delay 1
  end repeat
end tell
EOF

Then in TagTime’s launch.pl, replace $XT ... ${path}ping.pl $t with iterm2-tagtime ${path}ping.pl $t, and similarly for the other use of $XT a few lines later.
