Open pop.com meeting links directly in app
Would be nice if the app could open meeting links directly instead of having to open a browser tab, so that people that use browser switchers like Velja can skip that step; or so people can open the app from the terminal by doing
$ open -a Pop https://pop.com/j/798-343-284
I have added support for Pop in Velja now, but I still think Pop should support normal URLs to make it easier to integrate with it. At the moment, every tool has to modify the URL for Pop (transform https://pop.com/j/824-092-533 into pop://join?roomId=824-092-533) instead of it being handled in a single place (by Pop).
And if you decide to add it, don't forget to add the following to your Info.plist: https://sindresorhus.com/velja#url-support-infoplist
If it's useful to you, Pop already has its own URI scheme, which is what's used by the join session browser tab, e.g., the
https://pop.com/j/824-092-530URL opens the
pop://join?roomId=824092530URI. On Linux, Pop can be activated directly with
xdg-open 'pop://join?roomId=824092530'; and I imagine
openon MacOS would do the same.
Edit: Velja looks handy. Interestingly, Pop is specifically mentioned in its FAQ
Edit 2: I've emailed this info to Velja's creator
Brendan Weibrecht: Hey! Velja mentions pop on their FAQ because I contacted them directly first about this :)
Gui: Ah ha. Did you discuss this custom scheme join URI?
Brendan Weibrecht: no we didn't, I didn't know about the custom scheme URI at that point
