webbrowser Build Status GoDoc Sourcegraph

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

It is Go modules compatible!

(go.mod was explicitly added in version v1.2.0)

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)

Miki Tebeka wrote a nicer version that wasn't on godoc.org when I did this, check it out!.

Already disliking it?

No problem! There's alternative libraries that may be better to your needs:
