Launch SourceTree using hyperlink


I have problem with launching SourceTree using hyperlink in HTML.

On my server I have installed git and I store my projects there. Now since I have a lot of projects I would like to make list of them and have buttton that will allow me to clone it using SourceTree with on click. Like BitBucket has button "Clone in SourceTree".

I think I need to use <a> tag with some "itms" that SourceTree recognizes. Does anybody have some code snippet that can help me? I would really appreciate it.
