##Options Object, {app, uri}

.pipe(open(options))

###Options.app String, local application

NOTE: If the options.app is not defined, the Default application will be used for the filetype/URL.

 
'google-chrome' // Linux 
'chrome' // Windows 
'google chrome' or 'Google Chrome' // OSX 
'firefox'
 
// Example: 
 
.pipe(open({uri: 'file:///etc/resolv.conf', app: 'google-chrome'}));
 

###Options.uri String, any valid uri (url, file protocol, or full path)

####Note for windows users: URLs may not have a default application. If the task is running without opening in a browser try setting the options.app. Google Chrome: "chrome" Firefox: "firefox"

 
'http://localhost:3000'
 
// Example: 
gulp.src('')
.pipe(open({app: 'google-chrome', uri: 'http://localhost:3000'}));
