I am definitely new to app development, but so far, Electron has been a great entry point. (I’m still very proud of myself for figuring out how to properly implement JQuery and JQueryUI.)
Recently, I discovered the ability to launch external applications such as the default web-browser using shell.openExternal(). This factors in very well to a certain app I would like to (attempt to) make, which is one where the user, from the main electron app (which should run in the background and probably be kept in the tray) can paste in links into a dynamic array of urls, and then launch their selected browser from either the desktop or from within the app, having all of their links open in new tabs, no matter from which location their browser gets launched. Basically, I want to develop an app that, when set to active, has control over which user-entered tabs are opened by default.
Obviously, without extra helpful features, this app sounds kind of pointless, so just to be clear, this is not the whole app.
But I’m not sure if something like this is even possible with Electron. I’m guessing so, but even after Googling for such a prospect, I didn’t find anything.
I would be very grateful for any help! Thanks a ton,
