How do I open magnet links in Firefox with a command line app, namely transmission-remote?

I think I need to make a packaged app that accepts arguments, and here's what I did so far:

  1. Use Automator to run a shell script with the following:

    transmission-remote -a [email protected]

  2. Save the Automator script as

  3. Choose in Firefox when using it for magnet links

However, pass arguments to this requires:

I assume Firefox is doing something like: %s, but I can't tell how Firefox is passing arguments to the helper app. I've also tried creating a wrapper shell script and naming it to no avail.

Alternatively, can Firefox use something like this as a protocol handler, where I can pass in %s?

EDIT: DS answer apparently works on Snow Leopard and Lion, but I'm still problems with blank arguments being sent from Firefox. I'll paste my comment here too:

I've tried the following but only blanks are sent: echo '[email protected]' >> ~/somefile and echo '$*' >> ~/somefile with and without quotes. Perhaps it is my Firefox settings (about:config?). I'm on 19.0.2 (latest), OSX 10.8.2 in case anybody else chimes in...

I was struggling with the same question. I got it to work, and I think you were missing a small step. Apparently Firefox on Mac, for its 'Open With' applications, doesn't pass arguments via command line or environment variables or any other unix-like method. It uses Mac's Launch Services. Automator can translate these to command line arguments. The following works on Snow Leopard:

  1. Start up Automator, selecting Application for 'Choose a template for your workflow'.
  2. Find the Action 'Run Shell Script', and drag or double-click to add it.
  3. For 'Pass input' dropdown: choose 'As arguments' <-- I think that's the step you are missing.
  4. For 'Shell' dropdown: pick the shell you like (probably /bin/sh, judging by your question).
  5. Automator will give you a sample of code, but you'll just want what you already have: transmission-remote -a '[email protected]' (double-quotes allow correct forwarding of arguments that contain spaces).
  6. Save the app.

When Firefox runs this app to open files/downloads, it passes them in Mac's native way, then Automator translates them to shell arguments, and the shell script forwards them to transmission-remote.

Assuming you are talking about windows

Chrome uses the windows default handler for the filetypes. Just search for 'Default Apps' in your start menu and change the association there, and chrome will then call the correct file.

I just did this on win10 for .torrent
