The Reminders application understands the reminders: URL scheme, so that you can invoke it, for instance, from Terminal as open reminders: (use of // is optional).

What I'm looking for is documentation of further elements of this scheme. Specifically, I want to construct URLs that allow me to do the following:

  • open a specific list
  • open a specific reminder

I've tried things like reminders:74771907-EA34-4848-A935-0C839AE123CC using both list and reminder-item identifiers, but to no avail.
