I know I can just use open command on these files to run them and the user will be prompted with an option to install them. Can I install such services silently though?

    You can use cp, mv, or ditto to move or copy the file. – At0mic Aug 23 '16 at 12:40
  • @IronCraftMan and copy it to the default automator library? Hm. Does that operation do the same as service 'installation'? – Arthmost Aug 23 '16 at 12:41
  • I don't know, and I can't test it at the moment, but you can. I'd assume there is no difference. – At0mic Aug 23 '16 at 12:42
  • @IronCraftMan This is elegant and simple. Thank you! – Arthmost Aug 23 '16 at 12:46

Moved the Automator services to $HOME/Library/Services/ instead of installing them.
