If you’re on a Mac you can do this with applescript and the [shell] external which can be found on the Cycling ’74 share page.

Wonder if any of the Max/Jitter networking objects could be coaxed into doing this, with the right setup. For SMS too, that would be useful.

You can also do a message to Max:

;max launchbrowser

this will launch the default mail app. But probably you want it to do everything auto, so use the java/shell ideas here for that.

Hey guys,

I searched for [shell] external everywhere with no luck. I would really appreciate if someone would put a link here from where I could download it!

Thank you
