* Package name    : node-opener
  Version         : 1.4.3
  Upstream Author : Domenic Denicola <d@xxxxxxxxxx> (https://domenic.me/)
* URL             : https://github.com/domenic/opener#readme
* License         : (WTFPL OR MIT)
  Programming Lang: _javascript_
  Description     : It allows the user to open webpages and files executable in the desktop envirionment.

.
It allows to open stuff webpages and files executable and cross-platform.
It can also be used programatically while writing a program. Plus, it returns the child process created, so you can do things like let your script exit while the window stays open:
 .
 Node.js is an event-based server-side _javascript_ engine.
.
This package is suitable for adding to Debian because as stated in the https://www.npmjs/opener.com page Windows has start, Macs have open so opener for Debian and also as given in the description it can help the user to open webpages files executable open editors and can also be used while writing programs.along with it installation of the package is also simple. 

No there are no packages on which opener depends.
.
To the best of my knowledge there no similar package in Debian that gives the privileges to the users that opener provides till now. Although there are commands that can be used to open webpages,editors etc but opener can be used for opening webpages,editors etc withou the use of separate commands.   
.
I hope to join the _javascript_ team and plan to maintain it constantly when new versions of it releases and when there are any bug issues. I want to join the _javascript_ maintainers team. Yes I need a sponsor for this package and and Praveen has agreed to sponsor the package.
