Is it possible to open a webview from a macro?

What I’m wondering about is if it’s possible for a macro to open a webview without going to a browser?
It would be awesome if this were an action where you could populate it with HTML from a file or text directly, but I’m not sure if it’s doable even as a shell script command or via Applescript.

Does anyone know the answer this one?

Thanks in advance :smile:

My first thought is that is might be possible to use KM to launch something using


This should do what you’re asking. Sal over at MAC OS X Automation has a page on creating website popups with Automator. The page is here:

There are several ways to run Automator workflows or services from KM.



Hey James,

Thanks. I had completely forgotten Automator could do that.

I tested the demo. It works and is easy to make changes to.

You can feed it a remote URL or a file URL.

Best Regards,

Wow, thanks a ton for this! I’m going to start playing around with this, but I think it’s going to do what I want :smile:

Thanks again,
