How can links, both local (for email URL: 'message:%') and for standard https and ftp, be included with SublimeTask?

Very useful to keep emails from clients next to related tasks for a job, or support files.

Hi, thanks for the feedback, I will take a look to see if I can highlight the url, href links etc.

Meanwhile, could you be more clear about the email url format you mentioned above? I'm kinda confused with this 'message:%' format, what does this supposed to mean?

Hi, The message:% is the beginning of the string for a link to an email (Mac OS) from an external application, such as Things.

This integration is very useful: for e.g I can extract key actions received from a client via email, copy them on a job file (.task) and paste the email URL for reference (always need this with clients :).

So far I've been using a TextMate bundle, Task which I tweaked to add this string to the default http url. I am looking for the complete switch to ST, and SublimeTask is key to that. Cheers

Hi, I finally get this "message:%" url in Things, I think I get your idea. One quick question though, did you see this "message:%" format been used in applications other than Things? Want to make sure it's not the functionality only Things provides.

No it's not exclusive to Things, and also apply to iCal event and ToDo items – basically Cocoa framework. An other example is with BusyCal: if you drag an email to the Notes field you will see a link. If you right click and select "Edit link" you will recognise the message:% URL. But I am limited to the apps I used.

Completing SublimeTask with URLs could also include local files, with the file://localhost string. For similar reason I mentioned before...

Thanks
