I like to have a right click menu option for editing files in MacVim. Fortunately, this is easily done with Automator. Unfortunately its not easy to copy from computer to computer when I’m setting up a new computer
open Automator and create a new Document with the Quick Action template
Workflow receives current -> Files or Folders -> in -> Finder.app
add the step Run Shell Script
Pass input as arguments
open -a MacVim "$@"
In the menu, select Save…
the name you put into the “Save quick action as” window is the name that will appear in the context menu. I chose “Edit in MacVim”
Now jump on over to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts. on the left, select services, and then on the right look through and make sure that the newly created action is checked.
I’ve experimented with running
/usr/local/bin/mvim instead of
open but I found that doing so causes the script to not finish running until macvim closes
