comment Finder Menu Services No Longer Working
I've noticed the ScriptMonitor is hanging when I try to run my Automator based services. If I quit it when its process hangs, the Automator script runs.

comment How to access a clicked URL in a URL handler application created in Automator
It is possible to do this with AppleScript, which would be the "logical" way to extend an Automator workflow, without delving into XCode / ObjC and compiling your own app. (not that it's all that complicated, but it's likely AppleScript would be easier.)

comment Where are Services stored?
As a side note, services can also be defined in a .app bundle, they will be defined in the Info.plist for the app.

Opening downloaded docs from Vim and Emacs and jumping to the relevant item. Noticed open fails to pass the hash.

Not sure who else down voted you. Please remove the initial answer from your post, that was never the intended question. I will mark as correct when the noise is removed.

To be very clear the question is to open the file url via terminal / scripting. The title is updated.

comment What's the difference between alias and link?
Notably, Spotlight won't index a symlink. It will index an alias (albeit at a lower ranking.)

comment Can I make a symlink (to a .app folder) in Applications directory show up in spotlight?
I would recommend actually moving the MacVim app to Applications. Or installing it via brew cask. Aliases do index in spotlight, but they are ranked annoyingly low.

installed fine on a couple of machines without any intervention (std. step of brew update of course) - wish I knew why that other machine's config is out of whack.

Tried all those already unfortunately. Only Quartz is out of date, I will update it and try again.
