ExtendScript – Reveal in finder

How to reveal a folder in finder with ExtendScript


var revealThisInFinder = “~/Desktop/myFolderName”
revealFolder(revealThisInFinder);
function revealFolder(folderPath){
    var cleanFolderPath = Folder(folderPath).fsName;//sometimes we get ‘~/Desktop/Folder/NextFolder’. The ‘~’ path won’t work for terminal. This changes it back to “Users/userName/Desktop” format
    var terminalCommand = ‘cd “‘ + cleanFolderPath + ‘” && open .’;
    //app.system(terminalCommand)//photoshop
    var result = system.callSystem(terminalCommand)//after effects
   //return result;
}//
//end function
