browser-deeplink

‼️ Not maintained - Use at own risk

Redirect your website users to your native Android and/or iOS app. If the user does not have the app, they are redirected to the corresponding app store page.

Such functionality is very common for apps like YouTube, Spotify etc. But it is not default functionality in mobile browsers today, and unnecessarily hard to implement. This plugin uses a workaround with a hidden

iframe
and
setTimeout()
.

How to use

1. Include browser-deeplink on your site.


or

require("./browser-deeplink");

2. Provide your app details

deeplink.setup({
    iOS: {
        appName: "myapp",
        appId: "123456789",
    },
    android: {
        appId: "com.myapp.android"
    }
});

This will create the following fallback app store links:

iOS:

itms-apps://itunes.apple.com/app/myapp/id123456789?mt=8

Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myapp.android

Options

Optionally, you can specify a

iOS.storeUrl
or
android.storeUrl
to override the fallback redirect.
js
deeplink.setup({
    iOS: {
        storeUrl: "http://...",
    }
});

You can also skip the app store fallback altogether if you want by specifying

fallback: false
js
deeplink.setup({
    fallback: false
});

In case you want to register your android app on your http(s) links directly you can disable deeplinking for android by specifying

androidDisabled: true
js
deeplink.setup({
    androidDisabled: true
});

3. Open your deeplinks!

window.onload = function() {
    deeplink.open("myapp://object/xyz");
}
