Show alert dialogs using Node.


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

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

To show an error dialog:

dialog.err(msg, title, callback);

To show a generic info dialog:, title, callback);
// example, setting title'Ground control to major Tom.', 'My app', function(err){
    if (!err) 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(err){
    if (!err) console.log('User clicked OK');

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