Macos – Open Google Chrome Specific Profile From Command Line Mac

bashcommand linegoogle-chromemacos

I have been trying to open Google Chrome from command line but with no luck! I have tried How do I start Chrome using a specified "user profile"?

My goal is to open Google Chrome with a specific profile such as "profile 1", "profile 2", or "Default" from the command line, using bash to be specific, on my Mac.

UPDATE: 6/3/14
Got this to work BUT only works when opening chrome for the first time

open -a Google\ Chrome --args --"profile-directory"="Profile 1"

So How do you get –args to be accepted AFTER google chrome as already been launched??

You could try the following:

/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --args --profile-directory=Default
