open

open a file or url in the user's preferred application

usage

var open = require('open');
open('http://www.google.com');

install

npm install open

how it works

  • on win32 uses start
  • on darwin uses open
  • otherwise uses the xdg-open script from freedesktop.org

warning

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.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
