Software development isn’t simply writing code. We’re all jumping between version control, a text editor, a terminal window, and a Finder window. Sometimes one of those windows gets closed or hijacked for another task, and you lose your spot. You either have to open a new one and navigate there, or try to find the original window and go back to where you were. It’s small, but these little disconnects break your flow.
With Conveyor, this becomes much easier. Since you can choose your tools in Conveyor’s preferences, and Conveyor knows where the project lives, you get one-click buttons to help you jump right to your project.
Since Conveyor always knows where the project lives, it offers one-click buttons to open your text editor, hop into a terminal, or open your project in Finder. These buttons are visible in the menu bar from anywhere within a project. You have one-click access to open your project’s entire folder structurein your text editor, get to a terminal window within your project’s directory, or open your project in Finder at any time.
That’s handy, but Conveyor goes a step further with contextual links elsewhere as well. For instance, if you start a new task and navigate to look at the “Uncommitted” files before you’ve made any changes, Conveyor helps you jump into your text editor.
On the surface, these kinds of things are small, but Conveyor is designed to fit in with your existing tools and, more importantly, help you stay in the zone by reducing or simplifying those tedious and repetitive little tasks that slow you down.
