Zenity dialogs for Golang, Windows, macOS


Zenity dialogs for Golang, Windows and macOS

PkgGoDev Go Report

This repo includes both a cross-platform Go package providing Zenity-like dialogs (simple dialogs that interact graphically with the user), as well as a “port” of the zenity command to both Windows and macOS based on that library.

This is a work in progress.

Lots of things are missing. For now, these are the only implemented dialogs:

Behavior on Windows, macOS and other Unixes might differ slightly. Some of that is intended (reflecting platform differences), other bits are unfortunate limitations, others still are open to be fixed.


There are a bunch of other dialog packages for Go.
Why reinvent this particular wheel?


  • no cgo (see benefits, mostly cross-compilation)
  • no main loop (or any other threading or initialization requirements)
  • cancelation through context
  • on Windows:
    • no additional dependencies
      • Explorer shell not required
      • works in Server Core
    • Unicode support
    • WSL/Cygwin/MSYS2 support
  • on macOS:
    • only dependency is osascript
  • on other Unixes:
    • wraps either one of zenity, qarma, matedialog
  • [macOS] Dialogs don't get focus automatically

    [macOS] Dialogs don't get focus automatically

    Test code:

    package main
    import (
    func main() {
    	file, err := zenity.SelectFile(zenity.Title("Test focus on MacOS"))
    	if err != nil {

    Run in iTerm2, the SelectFile dialog does not get focus unless click the title bar. Similar to https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2548172

    Run in native Terminal, the SelectFile dialog get focus with one click. Is it possible to get focus automatically?

  • [macOS] progress doesn't pop up in front since v0.8.8

    [macOS] progress doesn't pop up in front since v0.8.8

    1. Open iTerm2 or Terminal, not full screen.
    2. Steps to reproduce
    git clone https://github.com/ncruces/zenity.git
    cd zenity
    git checkout v0.8.7
    go build ./cmd/zenity
    ./zenity --progress
    git checkout v0.8.8
    go build ./cmd/zenity
    ./zenity --progress

    v0.8.8 doesn't pop up in front without fullscreen.

  • Icon option should specify supported file extension

    Icon option should specify supported file extension

    On the documention, I think it should be specified that PNG files are supported (tested on Windows, haven't checked MacOS).

    Also, do you plan adding support for .ico files? I thinking it would be useful using .ico instead of .png (Or maybe even use the .ico files present on some Windows DLLs like shell32.dll)

    As a quick workaround, commenting out https://github.com/ncruces/zenity/blob/master/util_windows.go#L135 works (for all dialogs, on amd64 and i386.

    Sadly I don't know much about the Windows-specific call in question; maybe there is an easy way to fix this?

  • Feature: add list command

    Feature: add list command

    I made some improvements:

    1. better error handling in unix zenity:
      • First always handle the no-error case (IMO its nicer to read the code)
      • Then explicitly handle the errors which are meaning full. Exit code 1 especially, all others are not used and counted as pure errror.
      • Report Cancelation or Close (exit code 1, -> with a special error). This is very useful, not so much for message function but for the choose.
    2. Add width /height
    3. Add List command. List selection.

    All changes are so far only for unix. I could not yet understand the osascript code.

    Also: -> The main.go diaptches to an syscall.Exec this gets me into troubles when returning indices in the List command. I would rather remove the whole main.go executable, as it anyway does not wrap zenity (no posix flags) etc... so why is it there, either it provides the same arguments and is a "port". For other users contributing to this, I would remove this or refactor it using cobra with Posix Flags and make it a "port" (just my opinion :-))

    I am not sure if I can continue here, since there is some stuff in misshape. I will probably just wrap my own dialog in

    Add an option for using custom dialog icons on MacOS

    I want to suggest an extension to the message dialog to allow custom icons, for example:

    zenity.Warning( "Text", zenity.Title("Title"), zenity.CustomIcon("some_icon.icns"))

    The PR outlines the minimal implementation which would address our current needs, and I'm keen to understand your perspective: is that something you'd be willing to accept? If so, what else do I need to cover?

    I'd appreciate any feedback, and thanks for your work on the library.

    Collaboration on Swift for Darwin

    Hi Nuno,

    I thought I drop a note here:

    I was experimenting recently with the fact that Swift is able to compile an NSAlert message box far better than the shitty AppleScript thing we are both doing in our libs.

    I was wondering if we could collaborate on making the dialogs more robust and nicer and more native on macOS. The message box I have already together, the thing would be to run the script with swift or just execute the script if its chmod +x.

    Run the following script with

    swift dialog.swift message info warning "Title here..." "Message here..." Ok Cancel 3 A B C

    I have not yet together the NSAlert with NSViewTable where we put all options in, that would be awesome. Maybe we could give a try in hacking together a simple script which makes zenity --list at least with some basic options, basically extending my script above. What do you think =). So far I am far more convinced this is a future proof solution (except the fact that apple changes stuff and it won't compile anymore (so far it works on Big Sur and High Sierra (which is a good thing) (probably needs compiler directives etc which is possible in Swift). Furthermore its not shitty ApplyScript which I have a hard time in understanding...

    zenity.SelectFileSave adds a \n character


    This is weird, but when I call zenity.SelectFileSave(), it adds a newline character at the end of the filepath returned by the function, regardless of what I type in for the filename. Here's a quick test:

    package main
    import (
    func main() {
    	filename, err := zenity.SelectFileSave()
    	if err != nil {
