This module implements a simple proc for opening URLs with the user's default browser.

Unstable API.


proc openDefaultBrowser(url: string) {...}{.raises: [], tags: [].}

opens url with the user's default browser. This does not block.

Under Windows, ShellExecute is used. Under Mac OS X the open command is used. Under Unix, it is checked if xdg-open exists and used if it does. Otherwise the environment variable BROWSER is used to determine the default browser to use.

This proc doesn't raise an exception on error, beware.
