OpenURL.library

Donate Build Status Code Climate License Github Issues

This Amiga-based shared library was created to make it easier for application programmers to include clickable URLs in their applications, about windows, etc. Current solutions to this problem typically are to launch an ARexx script or just support a few webbrowsers, with no room for configuration. This leads to countless reinventions of the wheel (how many SendURLToBrowser.rexx scripts do you have on your harddisk?).

This library solves the problem by giving application programmers a very simple API to handle (one function) and the user gets configurability with the included preferences program.

OpenURL is available for AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, MorphOS and AROS.
