    browse

    Launch apps in full-screen mode from the Terminal. Currently Mac OS X only, patches welcome.

    Install

    Install Node.js, then run

    $ npm install -g browse

    Usage

    Six convenience commands are installed:

    Google Chrome Canary

    To launch Chrome Canary, run:

    $ ca <location>

    Google Chrome

    To launch Chrome, run:

    $ ch <location>

    Firefox

    To launch Firefox, run:

    $ ff <location>

    Safari

    To launch Safari, run:

    $ sf <location>

    Launch anything in full-screen

    Run the command ccf (an applescript which sends the CMD+CTRL+f keystroke to the active application) following a regular open to switch it to full-screen mode:

    $ open -a Calendar && ccf

    Should an app have an additional full-screen mode shortcutted by CMD+Shift+f (as Chrome does), use:

    $ open -a "Google Chrome" && csf

    Tip. If an app is slow to load, give it chance to load fully by inserting a pause before running the keyboard shortcut:

    $ ff http://www.rt.com && sleep 3 && csf

    Keywords

    none

    Install

    npm i browse
