open url in safari from pythonista
# a bit of a hack
# by Cormac Relf - - @cormacrelf
# Opens the url on the clipboard in Safari
# by opening Google Chrome with an x-callback-url
# that takes you to the same url in Safari.
# I guess you could just open it in googlechrome://
import webbrowser
import clipboard
import console
import urllib
import re
url = clipboard.get()
url = urllib.quote_plus(url)
callback = "googlechrome-x-callback://x-callback-url/open/?url=YOURL&x-source=Safari&x-success=YOURL"
callback = re.sub("YOURL", url, callback)
