How do I do the following equivalent of Windows on a Mac?

"path\to\chrome\chrome.exe" --app=http://facebook.com

Link to Windows question.

There used to be a lifehacker guide to do this but unfortunately some of the links in the guide are dead.

  • could you tell us (just for the record) what Mac and what OS is it. – Ruskes Oct 29 '18 at 17:18
  • /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --app="google.com" – Ruskes Oct 29 '18 at 17:21

This will open Google Chrome with the specified URL:

/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --app="https://example.com"
  • @William Oh. Does this work?: /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --app="https://example.com" – abc Oct 29 '18 at 17:57
  • almost except it should have separate icons in the dock like Windows. – William Oct 29 '18 at 17:58
