I have a local directory and want to share a clickable link that will open the user's default file browser.
How to generate an URL of the
file:// protocol for a given local filename?
some_program /foo/bar # file:///foo/bar some_program "/föö bar" # file:///f%C3%B6%C3%B6%20bar some_program "$( realpath . )" # link to local directory
I found some hints for the reverse operation utilizing naive replacement commands in
sed what fails for filenames with non-alphanumeric characters like whitespace.
