I need the following tools for Finder.

  • Launch a Terminal from Finder.
  • Copy a path information from Finder.
  • Make a new file from Finder. (not a new directory)

Any hints?

FilePathCM. FilePathCM is a contextual menu and menu bar item for copying the:

  • POSIX path
  • Server afp URL
  • Abbreviated (Tilde) POSIX path
  • POSIX path for Terminal.app
  • HFS path
  • Full name
  • Display name
  • Extension
  • Windows style path

of Finder items (files, folders, volumes) to the clipboard.

To create a new file, see this link: http://www.webmonkey.com/2007/03/how_to_create_new_files_in_apple_s_finder/

To launch a terminal, I like answer from neoneye but I also use DTerm.

I have no idea how to create a new file from within the Finder, however..

cdto logo

cdto

Opens Terminal and cd's to the current Finder dir.

cdff

cdff allows you to open the current Terminal dir in the finder.

I would suggest you to use Path Finder

It is not a free application but you have 30 days to try it out. You can see a screencast here.

It enables you to do the following from your requisites:

  1. Launch a Terminal from Finder.
  2. Copy a path information from Finder. (I don't know what you mean with this but it sure does the job).
  3. Make a new file from Finder. (not a new directory)
    and any more...
