"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive
Member "Atom/resources/app/apm/node_modules/open/README.md" (11 Apr 2017, 800 Bytes) of package /windows/misc/atom-windows.zip:
As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested source page into HTML format (assuming markdown format).
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
A member file download can also be achieved by clicking within a package contents listing on the according byte size field.
Open a file or url in the user's preferred application.
var open = require("open");
open taks an optional argument specifying the program to be used to open the file or URL.
npm install open
How it works
- otherwise uses the
xdg-open script from freedesktop.org
The same care should be taken when calling open as if you were calling child_process.exec directly. If it is an executable it will run in a new shell.
