Simple wrapper around zenity, osascript and vbscript that lets you show native alert dialogs on Linux, OSX and Windows, respectively.


var dialog = require('dialog');

dialog.info('Hello there');


To show a generic info dialog:

dialog.info(msg, title, callback);

// example, setting title
dialog.info('Ground control to major Tom.', 'My app', function(err){
    if (!err) console.log('User clicked OK');

To show a warning dialog:

dialog.warn(msg, title, callback);

// example, without setting title
dialog.warn('This computer will autoterminate itself in 5 seconds.', function(err){
    if (!err) console.log('User clicked OK');

Both title and callback are optional. Default title shown is "Important".
