Open an URI from gedit

Nothing to show


"Open URI Context Menu" is a plugin for gedit, the default Gnome text editor. This plugin adds two context menu items when we right-click on an URI present in the file content: open on the browser or open on gedit to view source code.

Original version was developed by Martin Szulecki for gedit 2.

The current repository is a port of the plugin to gedit 3.


The plugin uses the command xdg-open from the package xdg-utils.



Git is used for revision control. Repository can be browsed online or cloned.
