Opens files via Mac OS's open Shell Command. By default, opens each file using the default application for that file. If the file is in the form of a URL, the file will be opened as a URL.
This is for Mac OS's open command only. If you're looking for a cross platform open command take a look at node-open. The difference is, that this command allows for options to pass to the open command.
All options are passed directly to the
