Thanks, I didn't know about |TextMate.system(...)| -- that's exactly 
what I was looking for. ?

It took a while until I got the escaping right, here's what I ended up with:

|def  link_to(title, local_path)
   url =URI.escape("file://#{local_path}")
   title =CGI.escape_html(title)
   %{<a onclick='TextMate.system("open#{Shellwords.escape(url)}"); return false;' href='#{url}'>#{title}</a>}

Gist with the complete setup: https://gist.github.com/noniq/9289157
