webbrowser Build Status GoDoc

webbrowser provides a simple API for opening web pages on your default browser.

It's inspired on Python's webbrowser package but lacks some of its features (open new window).

It just opens a webpage, most browsers will open it on a new tab.

Installation

As simple as:

go get -u github.com/toqueteos/webbrowser

Usage

package main

import "github.com/toqueteos/webbrowser"

func main() {
    webbrowser.Open("http://golang.org")
}

That's it!

Crossplatform support

The package works on:

  • [x] android (verified by 3rd party)
  • [x] darwin
  • [x] freebsd (verified by 3rd party)
  • [x] linux
  • [x] netbsd (verified by 3rd party)
  • [x] openbsd (verified by 3rd party)
  • [x] windows
