Add Prefix String Automator Action

I wrote an Automator action to prepend a string to an input string, since I needed to add a web URL to a word. It was a little convoluted to get around writing it but the Automator Tutorial for Applescript Actions at Apple’s Developer site was extremely helpful. I decided on an Applescript based action since it was a little easier to write. You can download the “Append Prefix String” action from the Software page or directly from this link. I’ve also included a link to the source files on the Software page.

Sample workflow below:
