Is it possible to have Dynamo open a website? I would like to supply a URL and have Dynamo open the default web browser and navigate to the URL.
This seems simple enough but I have not found any way to do it with OOTB nodes or packages.
Thanks in advance!
DynamoAutomation has a Process.Start node (or at least I think that‘s how I named it). If you supply the URL as input I think it should open in the default browser.
Thanks for the reply! I downloaded the package but the only thing close is “Process.ByPathAndArguments”, which is not reporting an error but also not opening a browser.
Wanted to post my solution here in case anyone runs across the thread. Just a few lines of Python got me there. Thanks again for looking into it!

Thanks for posting this…just what i needed…
except that it is not working…
Youre missing a python module named sqlite3
yeah… the module appears to be loaded. I will dig into it a bit and let you know.
this works for me
# Enable Python support and load DesignScript library
from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import *
from System.Windows.Forms import WebBrowser
wb = WebBrowser()
if url :
OUT = url
This is great - is there any way it can open with whatever the default browser is?
Not sure but, hope this helps you.
This very helpful, thanks
