Open URL / HTTP browser in Max/Jitter


    Feb 06 2007 | 6:35 am
    I'm trying to find a way to open URL (and ideally launch a browser in the process) with Max/Jitter on Intel Mac.
    LaunchURL external does this, but not on Intel Mac. mxj.syscommand would let me exec a script to do it, but again not on Intel Mac. jit.uldl can upload FTP but not HTTP.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

      This works:

      Thanks Wes! While this does work with a hardwired URL, I need to specify different URLs on the fly. Essentially, I need a way to specify the URL as a variable. I've experimented with using a message box containing a URL at the input to the ; max message with $1, but it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?
      Thanks again!

      You could compose your message using sprintf, bang it with prepend set
      connected to sprintf's output to place it in a message box, subsequently
      bang the messagebox

      Check out p. 22 of Javascript in Max. You can use this JS script and
      patch to do what you want.
      -------------------http.js-----------------------------------
      function launch(val)
      {
      max.launchbrowser(val);
      }

      I tried that and I got an error saying [send max] already existed with
      the result that the object I created had no inlets.

      Sorry for the misinformation here. Try [forward max]. Example patch
      below.

      Great. Easier to use than [sprintf] to make a ; message.

      psi... lord?
      So does this mean I have to buy a $200 "Double Crystal Power Ring" in
      order to master Jitter?
      "A Psi-Lord has total control over the Matrix. What makes him
      different from a Psi-Master is that he has gone beyond knowledge,
      reaching the position of silent knowledge where he knows everything.
      To reach this position of the assemblage point one needs only one
      thing - power. Total ruthlessness of spirit is required, not to
      achieve power, but to stop power being bled from the Psi-Master by
      him/her donating energy to poor souls in need of energy. A Psi-Lord
      never gives energy to anyone under any circumstances, only giving
      them access to energy via psychotronic amplifiers which feed off the
      Matrix - weakening it for Psi-Masters only..."

      Oops,
      It appears JKC let the cat out of the bag. Just be careful to avoid
      Graham Nickells aka Paul Hughes Barlow, as his crystals will apparently
      drive you mad, make you ill, and are part of an evil plot by the UK and
      US government to confuse the populace about the powers of psi-technology.

      Thank god that we have this service however:
      "If you have bought any of these poisoned crystals, talismans...
      amulets, I have designed an anti occult/anti demon pc to cleanse
      these poor people of occult poisons and entities. This full spectrum
      cleansing PC costs $70 plus $10 p&p"
      Ok. ill stop. Well played gentlemen.. well.. played...

      All I know is that this charm-bracelet thing can turn on
      the radio at ear-splitting volume in SUVs remotely, make
      dogs pee right where they're standing, bend lunchmeat,
      and get me automatic upgrades to business class on
      Greyhound buses. Joshua told me never to wear it
      anywhere in a restaurant or hotel where they were hosting
      speed dating, but that's not been a problem. The matching
      cufflinks don't appear to do anything, though.

      I wonder - Gregory , is the "Double Crystal Power Ring" related in
      anyway to those rotating and pulsing tori and their mystical psychic
      effects?

      Some years ago I was working in a DTP studio, and once we had local
      eccentric painter as a customer, sitting next to me and telling me
      where to place things. And as if that was not annoying enough - the
      machine crashed frequently, until he said: Look, I have this crystal
      in my pocket, people say it causes bad things to computers, let me
      take it out.
      He took a huge stone out of his pocket, and placed it outside.
      Computer stopped crashing. I'll never know...

      Gosh, that'd be asking me whether I believe that all forms
      of enfeeblement are outward manifestations of some
      common inner state. I will say this, though - the number of
      bent psi-lords at raves is higher than you might imagine.
