Running a bash script from a node URL

0 votes

So I've been exploring interesting ways to use yEd lately and I have an idea for using yEd graphs as ways to interact with my computer system in a novel way. What I am hoping to do is to be able to run a bash script on my system directly from a node in yEd. As of now, you can "link" a node to any file on your system such that if you select the node and then tap F8, the local file will be opened by whatever the default program is for that filetype. What I am hoping is that instead of opening a file from this local link, I could instead run the bash script. This would allow for a HUGE amount of creativity in how yEd can interact with your system (for instance, having nodes that would run a script to open your entire standard work setup).

Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

Thank you very much for the help!
