"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive

Member "Atom/resources/app/apm/node_modules/opener/README.md" (17 Oct 2016, 1301 Bytes) of archive /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 or download 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.

It Opens Stuff

That is, in your desktop environment. This will make actual windows pop up, with stuff in them:

```bash npm install opener -g

opener http://google.com opener ./my-file.txt opener firefox opener npm run lint ```

Also if you want to use it programmatically you can do that too:

```js var opener = require(“opener”);

opener(“http://google.com”); opener(“./my-file.txt”); opener(“firefox”); opener(“npm run lint”); ```

Plus, it returns the child process created, so you can do things like let your script exit while the window stays open:

js var editor = opener("documentation.odt"); editor.unref(); // These other unrefs may be necessary if your OS's opener process // exits before the process it started is complete. editor.stdin.unref(); editor.stdout.unref(); editor.stderr.unref();

Use It for Good

Like opening the user’s browser with a test harness in your package’s test script:

json { "scripts": { "test": "opener ./test/runner.html" }, "devDependencies": { "opener": "*" } }


Because Windows has start, Macs have open, and *nix has xdg-open. At least according to some guy on StackOverflow. And I like things that work on all three. Like Node.js. And Opener.
