Before switching to Sourcetree I was a gitx user, and also evaluated git-tower, and both of those apps feature a command line tool, to launch their app from a repository.
I found an earlier request for this at the old sourcetree site here:
However with the current version of sourcetree (1.2.81/18.104.22.168) invoking it from the command line with that command:
open $1 -a sourcetree
results in somewhat unexpected and annoying behavior. Sourcetree does not recognize repositories opened this way that already have bookmarks, so it 1) always prompts (sometimes two or three times) to create a new bookmark, and 2) it does not remember any window settings for the repository, even if you create a new bookmark from the popup.
Thanks for pointing out the issue with the bookmarks; this is down to the initialisation order when ST is launched this way. As I've mentioned, being on the App Store limits what SourceTree is allowed to do here (and it's getting stricter if anything), but I'll try to at least make ST behave better when you set this up yourself in future.
