SOLVED: Launch app from website link

Forums > macOS

Good morning

Looking for a way to launch my psotal service barcode app from an URL and found this page:

http://www.gietal.net/blog/launch-macos-app-from-url

But this describes an old method using AppDelegate....

Would this have to use now as well this snippet like for push notifications?

@main
struct WedernochApp: App {
    @UIApplicationDelegateAdaptor(AppDelegate.self) var appDelegate
    var body: some Scene {
        WindowGroup {
            MainView()
        }
    }
}

Ah no...there is no AppDelegateAdaptor for macOS.....

Is there another method to add Apple Event receiver for URLScheme?

Ah no...there is no AppDelegateAdaptor for macOS.....

There is: NSApplicationDelegateAdaptor | Apple Developer Documentation

Right...forgot the good old NextStep workstation I had (o;

So this just works fine:

@main
struct BarcoderApp: App {
    @NSApplicationDelegateAdaptor private var appDelegate: AppDelegate
    var body: some Scene {
        WindowGroup {
            ContentView()

        }
        Settings {
          PreferencesView()
        }
    }
}

class AppDelegate: NSObject, NSApplicationDelegate {
    open func applicationWillFinishLaunching(_ notification: Notification) {
        print("Will Finish Launching")
    }
}

And YESSS...Safari can launch now my Barcoder App ;-)

Now onto parsing URL parameters....
