Rust library to open URLs in the web browsers available on a platform

Inspired by the webbrowser python library

Documentation

Examples

use webbrowser;

if webbrowser::open("http://github.com").is_ok() {
    // ...
}

Currently state of platform support is:

  • macos => default, as well as browsers listed under Browser
  • windows => default browser only
  • linux/*bsd => default browser only (uses $BROWSER env var, failing back to xdg-open, gvfs-open, gnome-open, whichever works first)
  • android => not supported right now
  • ios => not supported right now

Important note:

  • This library requires availability of browsers and a graphical environment during runtime
  • cargo test will actually open the browser locally
