URL Scheme

Last updated 3 months ago

Flume uses the flumeapp:// URL scheme, which allows you to create links to jump directly to various areas of the application. Like with all macOS URL schemes, the links will also open Flume if it is not currently open.

Additionally, all the shortcuts below can be opened via a HTTP link to our website (eg. https://flumeapp.com/?redirect=pro)

If you are a Flume Beta user, substitute flumeapp:// with flumeapp-beta:// for all links. There is currently no ability to use the HTTP redirect shortcut to open Flume Beta.
