Launch Electron app from external browser through URL


I’m looking into using Electron in my project as a means of setting experimental browser features transparent to the user. There are only certain features of my web app that require this, so I wondered whether there is a way of triggering the electron app to open from the browser to carry out the specific task?

I’ve seen similar behavior in a Bluejeans application (no idea if they’re using electron) and it would work really well for my particular requirement.

I’ve seen similar questions around this and answers refer to this being available for Mac but not Windows. I would need this to run on both Mac and Windows.
