The situation: My mobile carrier offers for free to send SMS notifications by following a URL.
What I'd want: Include these URLs in various scripts to get notifications when I'm away from keyboard.
The problem: I can't find a way to open the URL silently (that is without opening it in a browser), the simplest thing:
do shell script "open https://myurl"
opens a tab and brings my browser to the front, so I'd have to close the tabs either manually or with some other lines in the script.
Is there's a more elegant way to do as if I had followed the link without showing it in a browser?
