webbrowser.open appex bug?
I'm not sure if this is expected behavior but
webbrowser.openreturns false and doesn't open the URL in the app extension (via console and via script).
https://forum.omz-software.com/topic/1988/launching-pythonista-from-1-6b-app-extension may be relevant. have you tried a webview?
Hmmmm - that's odd. Workflow is able to open a URL from its app extension.
Possibly because it has a Today widget?
I am wondering if this might be possible via objc_util ( though since the extension is still broken on 32 bit devices I cannot test it), since the enforcement seems to be via review, not kernel.
Actually, maybe this:
apparently the extension does not support openUrl, but it is still possible to walk up the responder chain to find the UIApplication. This looks doable in objc_util. There is another solution that uses NSClassFromString to get a UIApplication, that might be diable with ctypes...
Sweet! I'll try that - thanks!
