Share action to copy an Alfresco link in your email client

For this plugin, that works in Alfresco 4.x and 5.x versions, we need to register a protocol for using webdav url scheme (dav: or in our operating system. Recently, we made an update for Libreoffice 5.x in github.
Taking a similar aproximation, we developed another simple action for copying directly an Alfresco download URL via mailto: protocol, which is already registered in our OSes. I mean, when clicking in the corresponding action, your email client is opened with the download url for the file copied in the body of a message. Between the different download urls available, we chose http webdav url for getting some information about the paths and filenames. The github project is available here.
In fact, this is done in a similar way, when sharing a public url via email, but for public content.
This action is available in both Document Library and Document Details menus. The details menu is shown below:
When clicking for the first time and if a default application is not defined for the mailto: protocol (or url scheme), the browser will ask you for an application. Click in the right app and remember the chosen application. In the figure, I selected Zimbra, which is my email web client.
Finally, you will get something like this:
