I still like to type a lot of commands in a command prompt. But I spend ages navigating to the right directory.
It would be really really nice if I could just right click on an item in the project (and/or files) view and click on an
command prompt here action, which would open a new console window at the correct path.
(similar to something like this for Windows Explorer http://www.petri.co.il/images/cmd_here_5.gif)
I found a plugin (Run terminal http://plugins.netbeans.org/PluginPortal/faces/PluginDetailPage.jsp?pluginid=2876) that
has a context menu item under the Tools submenu in the files view.
There's also another plugin (Path tools
http://plugins.netbeans.org/PluginPortal/faces/PluginDetailPage.jsp?pluginid=676) that adds support for copying a path
to clipoard and "Explore path" and "Shell on path" actions, but unfortunately it does not have a context menu.
I've been reading a bit about Netbeans plugins. A context menu item is probably easy to add with layer files
(http://wiki.netbeans.org/wiki/view/DevFaqModulesLayerFile), but I haven't tired this yet (as keyboard shortcuts work as
well a context menu is not really essential).
Maybe the Path tools plugin could be "baked" into the rubyide?
Yup, I've also tried the plugin. Will take a look at it more when having time. Thanks for ideas.
The same like with 124130. Might be planned general IDE features, passing to ide component.
BTW, there is now plug-in from Andrei(CCing) - Run Terminal; which seems to do exactly what you want. I'm using it all
the time. Try to install it from update center and then just press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Enter (or Menu | Tools | Run Terminal)
and it will popup a terminal taking into account the context where you are. (editor, project view, files view, ....).
You might configure terminal to be run in Menu | Tools | Options | Advanced Options, if you are not satisfied with the
I guess this functionality will be provided through this extra plugin for now. So closing as fixed.
Feel free to reopen if this does not work for you.
Ah, did not know that Andrei is already default owner (redundant CC).
