Register your own URL protocol scheme or file extension

LinCastor enables you to register your own custom URL protocol scheme (e.g. mylink://foo/bar) and associate it with an application, shell or AppleScript handler.

As most OS X application support embedding links as part of a text, a custom URL protocol scheme provides a great way to connect different applications together or trigger custom workflows. For example: a link jira://issue1234 could open a JIRA tracker with specific issue. This link could then be placed in iCal’s reminder or any other text fields supporting links. More Info »

The same method will work for file extension, regardless whether they are well knowns (e.g. jpg or html) or your own. It is possible to override default application behaviour this way.
