Open a link to a space in the app

I have the app installed on macOS. If I click on this link: Kinopio – Thinking Canvas the Space opens in a Safari tab.

I would like to have the app open it instead.

ya that’d be great, and how it works on ios. It doesn’t seem supported by the app wrapper service that I’m currently using (closest I could find is custom url protocols: App Options: App Protocols and Deeplinks | ToDesktop Documentation). But in the farther future I’d like to switch to something non-electron-using like Tauri which may or may not support this.


note to self: this is possible in macos. In the case of notion, the website doesn’t know if the app is installed but just assumes based on being on a mac, and displays this pop-up

if i click ‘open in app’ some js runs and summons a browser alert window to ask if i want to do this. If I confirm then the app opens to the current notion url. On subsequent visits to the url in a browser, the url opens in the browser and the app also loads to that page.

If the app is already running the new page will open in a new tab in the app bc the app supports tabs (because of how they look when they conditionally load in, I suspect the tabs are also a webview, which is weird/electron-y)

Kind of cool
