Node Webkit- opening and sending emails via outlook

I have a cordova app that I want to run on desktops using Node Webkit.

I need to replace cordova.plugins.email() function with a Node Webkit equivelant but am struggling to find the info I need.

Can anyone help?

//email composer
$('#stage').on('click', '#email', function(event){
var pdfatt = (this.getAttribute('data-pdfemail'));
var profforename = window.localStorage.getItem('profForename');
var profsurname = window.localStorage.getItem('profSurname');
var profemail = window.localStorage.getItem('profEmail');

function (isAvailable) {
body:'<p><img src="wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Email_Header.jpg"/></p><br><br>From:<p>'+profforename+' '+profsurname+'</p><p>Tel:'+proftel+'</p><p>Mob: '+profmob+'</p><p>Email: '+profemail+'</p><br><br><a href="'+pdfatt+'"><img height="30px" src='+baseurl+'"/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/download-pdf.jpg"/><br>Click To Download the PDF</a><br><br><br><p><img src="/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Email_Footer.jpg"/></p>',
subject: 'subject',
isHtml: true
//alert('Service is not available') unless isAvailable;

The above code basically opens up a new email and pre-populates the email. I cannot find much information out there on how to do this. I have come across nodemailer but I don't think this is what I need as I would want to open up and email in Outlook and prepopulate, leaving the user to add the email address.

Many thanks


oh this is so simple, not sure why I tried to overcomplicate it! Turned out I sneeded to use the Nodewebkit GUI Library.

// Load native Nodewebkit UI library.  
var gui = require('nw.gui');
