I gave this a quick shot today, attached is a HyperLink Creator bundle.
There is one command (a dummy Feeling Lucky) which reads the
TM_LINK_FORMAT environment variable, and uses the value of this
variable as an ERb template, feeding ERb with a title and url
variable, when expanding it.
I have then added a setting for this variable for both HTML and
Markdown, and thus, depending on which language you are in, the
Feeling Lucky command will insert proper code (I also made a fallback
which causes an error message to be inserted).
Since the templates are ERb they can be made smart, e.g. about
whether or not the link has a title / explanation (info attribute). I
made the output of the Feeling Lucky command insert as snippet, so
the format templates should expect to have full snippet syntax (which
is why they call e_sn for the url/title).
We may need to refine this slightly, but I think this is overall a
good solution for separating logic and view.
A minor problem is that it is not clear which scope the command(s)
should be active in. I.e. should we just hardcode a scope selecting
the languages we know have the TM_LINK_FORMAT set, or scope it
globally? Or maybe we don’t actually need an activation for these
commands (beyond menu and ⌃⌘T), so this won’t be a problem…
