URL scheme

WhatSAB supports a custom URL scheme that allows other apps to open it with a parameter.

 

At the moment there are two URLs you can use to open WhatSAB:

  • whatsab://downloads – Opens the app on the downloads tab
  • whatsab://history – Opens the app on the history tab

 

Why should you care? Let me give an example why this can be useful:
SABnzbd allows you to create scripts that are executed when a new download is added and after a download was completed. You could use those scripts to post to a push notification service of your choosing (for example Prowl or  Pushover). Once you receive that push notification tell the push client to open the corresponding URL (downloads for new downloads, history for completed downloads).
