Snom URL Handler

tel:/sip: URL handler for snom SIP phones

snomURLHandler is a status item application that handles tel: and sip: URLs by diverting them to your snom VOIP telephone, thus making them work as clickable links in Safari, in embedded web views and elsewhere.

Obviously if you’re running this program you need to watch out in case some malicious script somewhere tries to dial a premium rate number (those should probably be blocked in most IP PBX set-ups anyway, frankly).

The source code is in my mercurial repository; you’ll need a recent version of Xcode to build it, then all you really need to do is run the application as a log-in item and configure it in the Preferences window.
