[swift-dev] Automator service: "View Public Swift Commit"

Hi, fellow Mac users. On GitHub, commit hashes are autolinked (within repositories, anyway), but that doesn't apply to mail clients, or, um, external bug tracking clients *cough*Radar*cough*. I've found myself wanting to jump quickly from a commit hash to the GitHub page for the commit (either to look at the diff, or to see if there are comments), so today I made an Automator workflow. It's just visiting "https://github.com/apple/swift/commit/${selected_text}", but that's good enough for me! (It's easy enough to edit for another repo, too.)

1. Download and open the workflow file. Allow Automator to install it as a Service.
2. Select a commit hash (even an abbreviated one). Here's one you can use for testing: 7154c6167baafc986f2d289aa96343fe5747bb11
3. Menu-click (right-click or control-click) and choose Services > View Public Swift Commit.

You can also set a keyboard shortcut by going to the Services section of the Shortcuts tab of the Keyboard preference pane.

Share and enjoy!
