Open Terminal for current Project using Xcode Keyboard Shortcut

Do you know, you can open Terminal from Xcode at the project's path with a custom keyboard shortcut? First, Create a new script file in your project root directory with following command -

open -a Terminal .

Now, open terminal and run chmod +x to make the file executable. Now go to Xcode's Preferences and select the Behaviors tab. Click on the + sign to add a new custom behavior, and on the right hand side, check Run and choose the script that was just created.

Click the symbol next to the behavior script name to set the keyboard shortcut. I use + + T for opening the Terminal. (Keyboard shortcut symbols - = Command key, = Control key, = Option (alt) key, = Shift key)

Here the demo video which cover all steps -
