Hello! My name is Eugene Zrazhevsky. I am WeblocOpener developer.
Most of users of WeblocOpener download it to open .webloc file for one or two times.
So why they should do it? What if there will be a new service, based on WeblocOpener project,
that will give the same options?

So I've got an idea: website (or telegram bot) with WeblocOpener options: open, create .webloc
files,QR-Code generators with drag-and-drop features.
All of it can be realised, but there is a problem:
Github pages does not support java projects, so I need a new hosting (with domain name in case of website).

Good hosting with good options cost for 1-2 year of using: $250 - $500.

If you want me to realise this idea, please donate, and when it's ready - you will be able
to operate with .webloc files without downloading the app.

P.S. There is a pool in WeblocOpener's telegram channel. If we imagine, that I have all money
I needed to make WeblocOpener online possible, what it should be: a website or a telegram bot.

WeblocOpener is a simple way to open, edit, create MacOS Safari .webloc files on Windows and Debian GNU/Linux.

What is .webloc file?

.webloc extension is usually means that in front of you is a MacOS Safari web-url.
Actually it is a text document, formatted to property list — PLIST 1.0 (see).
You can open it with any text-editor (like notepad on Windows) to find out the url, saved in .webloc file. But if you need to open a big number of files or open them often — using text-editor wouldn't be the fastest and the easiest solution.
So that's why I want to offer you — WeblocOpener.
