Ability to open the default browser instead of asking the user to copy/paste the URL

See original GitHub issue

It would be an improvement if opn is considered as a dependency for ms-rest-azure package so that it could open the URL in default browser on executing azure login from CLI, or upon msRest.interactiveLogin() API call.

const opn = require('opn');

+1 to this. I’m using opn in a project to do exactly this, and it might be nice if the Azure SDK handled this (maybe it could be an opt-in option?).

I’m also parsing out the device code and copying it to the clipboard, which is another behavior that might make sense for the SDK to handle. That way, interactive logins are as simple as possible.

Hi @fiveisprime, shame this issue is closed. I also think this would be a great idea.

I understand the concerns about varying ways of using the SDK and browser support, but… does / could interactiveLogin have a sort pre-call hook that contains the // url and auth code … and if like me you want to do something with them you can but be default the cli just logs the instructions as it does now?

Anyone else got any ideas about how to open a browser and copy the code to make it less of a faff for the user?
