10.6: A New Service to Shorten URLs
Authored by: Yirgacheffe on Dec 30, '10 10:27:37AM

Thanks for that hint, works fine. :-)

I have one question: What do I have to alter in order to paste the shortened URL to the clipboard?
I tried this:
'Tell application "Finder" to set the clipboard to aurl'

instead of 'return aurl'
But I only got an error.

Anyone any idea?

Just drag in a "Copy to Clipboard" action after the AppleScript action. You might also want to remove the check next to "Replaces selected text" at the top of the service.

Also, no need to tell Finder. This command works:

set the clipboard to shortURL
