HTTP links to open in the client

Hello, I just tried installing Radicle and the client works pretty nicely!

I have one feature suggestion. It would be cool to have a button to copy the URL that opens the Radicle client app, similarly to how https://t.me/telegram is opened by Telegram, or https://us04web.zoom.us/j/XXX?pwd=XXX in Zoom.

It’d be very convinient to share such links on the internet in general, but my goal is to make a badge in the repo readme with the link to open my project in Radicle. Does it sound like a good idea?

the URL could be something like: https://open.radicle.xyz/<project_id>

Hey @v1rtl! Thanks for the feedback. Love the idea — definitely something that would boost usability. I created an issue and added it to our Feedback Hub to see if we have time to pick it up.

If you’re interested in tackling this in a contribution let us know! We’re happy to support :seedling:

Hey @v1rtl, in the meantime we’ve been working on something along those lines. I won’t work entirely as you have in mind. You can read more about this here: Opening Upstream via links on the web - #6 by kim

thanks for updates

even though custom URL scheme is not what the issue is about, still cool that there’s an easy way to share links

i still can use link shorteners that redirect to another url though…
