add option to auto-launch browser on server Add command-line argument --browser (shortened to -b) which will auto-launch a web-browser pointing to the Klaus server via the Python webbrowser module. Note that we do things in the wrong order in that we launch the browser and *then* start the server. In the absence of a cleaner way of getting a function to run after server setup this approach actually works in practice. If this doesn't Just Work for someone we can think again about more complex options. Rich Wareham 5 years ago
