Open local folder in finder/explorer from Laravel web app

Posted 4 months ago by finchy70

I need my Laravel app to open a specific folder on the local file system of my mac in finder. Is this possible? We have a locally stored directory which contains individual directories which contain job specific documentation. We want to keep these local and not upload them to the webserver. As everyone using this web app will be either on the office network or connected to it from home via vpn we like to be able to open the correct job directly in finder or windows explorer locally on the users machine. Every user has the directory mapped to their machine as the Z drive on windows. I use Go->Connect to server for my connection(macos). Windows set up is more important as only i use macos.
