Create a button that redirects users to the web.

I wish to create an add-in which would be able to live in fusion and when clicked on, it redirects the user to the web browser where he can do some other things. How can I implement this using Python and/or javascript.

In this example you can see how to build an addin which creates a button, and once it is clicked a palette will open to display a local HTML file.  You can also load a public web on it.  Or if you want, you can start a web browser outside of Fusion360 (be aware there won't be native communication between the web browser and Fusion360).

The code is made in Python.  Javascript is not longer supported.


Hope this help.

Here's some code that will open up your default browser to a specified URL.


import webbrowser'', new=2)


Here's the official documentation for webbrowser.

Thank you, from the example, you have to click on show to open a pellet before you can click the button. but I need the button to have my company's logo/icon on it and when you click on it, it opens the web browser outside fusion immediately.
