    Dialog

    Simple wrapper around zenity, osascript and vbscript that lets you show native alert dialogs on Linux, OSX and Windows, respectively.

    Example

    var dialog = require('dialog');
     
    dialog.info('Hello there');

    Usage

    To show an error dialog:

    dialog.err(msg, title, callback);

    To show a generic info dialog:

    dialog.info(msg, title, callback);
     
    // example, setting title
    dialog.info('Ground control to major Tom.', 'My app', function(exitCode) {
        if (exitCode == 0) console.log('User clicked OK');
    })

    To show a warning dialog:

    dialog.warn(msg, title, callback);
     
    // example, without setting title
    dialog.warn('This computer will autoterminate itself in 5 seconds.', function(exitCode){
        if (exitCode == 1) console.log('User closed window');
    })

    exitCode indicates whether the user clicked the default (OK) button (value 0), or if they closed the window or clicked the "No/Cancel" button (value 1).

    Both title and callback are optional. Default title shown is "Important".
