Frequently Asked Questions

What does opener do?

Opener is a versatile, cross-platform utility that enables the opening of various types of content within your desktop environment. It can open web pages, local files, and executables, making it possible to create actual windows that pop up with the selected content. Whether you need to launch a website, view a text file, open an application like Firefox, or run a specific command like 'npm run lint', opener accomplishes this effectively.

How do you use opener?

Here's how to use Opener for different purposes:

First you need to install it globally using npm:

npm install opener -g

Then you can run the opener command followed by the content you wish to open:

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

If you want to use Opener programmatically, you can integrate it into your JavaScript files:

var opener = require("opener");

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

Opener also returns the child process created, allowing your script to exit while the window remains open:

var editor = opener("documentation.odt");
editor.unref();
editor.stdin.unref();
editor.stdout.unref();
editor.stderr.unref();

You can also use Opener in your package's test script to automatically open a test harness in the user's browser:

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