dialog

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".
