[CLJ-920] Adds support for FreeDesktop's xdg-open in clojure.java.browse/browse-url. Created: 28/Jan/12  Updated: 01/Mar/13  Resolved: 29/Feb/12

Status: Closed
Project: Clojure
Component/s: None
Affects Version/s: Release 1.3
Fix Version/s: None

Type: Enhancement Priority: Minor

Labels: enhancement

Any environment that supports FreeDesktop, so Linux and BSD mainly.

Attachments: Text File browseurl.patch    
Patch: Code


This patch allows environments that support FreeDesktop to browse a URL in their default browser. This is important because unless the desktop environment bridges to Java (like Gnome does) the URL will be opened in a Swing window, which is not always desired.

Is this a duplicate of CLJ-896? Can you look at the patch there and see if there is any advantage to the patch for it vs. the one here? Or perhaps some combination that is an improvement on them both?

The issue is definitely a duplicate of CLJ-896. The proposed patches were different. CLJ-896 now has an attached patch that is an enhancement of what Jeremy Heiler created.
