Opening links in Todoist (electron app)

I was running into issues clicking the authentication link in Todoist to login to my account. I was using the latest version from nixpkgs-unstable and even tried to use the latest version (1.0.5) but that unfortunately failed as well trying a few electron versions.

I found a post that talked about xdg-open getting confused about how to open links in linux (I’m running Pop). After writing a similar shim I was able to get the authentication link to open again. I wanted to post my solution here for critiques but also in case it helps anyone troubleshoot a similar issue.

Is this an issue that can be fixed (with a less hacky solution) in the todoist-electron package?

# example homemanager module
{ config, pkgs, ... }:

  # xdg-open won't work currently as the XDG_DATA_DIRS that are prepended mess
  # with its ability to open urls.
  xdgOpenWrapper = pkgs.writeScriptBin "xdg-open" ''


    if [[ $url =~ https://* ]]; then
      ${pkgs.glib}/bin/gdbus call --session \
        --dest org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop \
        --object-path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop \
        --method org.freedesktop.portal.OpenURI.OpenURI \
        --timeout 5 \
        "" "$url" {}
      echo "Ignoring xdg-open call with $1"
in {
  nixpkgs.overlays = [
    (final: prev: {
      todoist-electron = prev.todoist-electron.overrideAttrs (old: rec {
        postFixup = ''
          makeWrapper ${final.electron_15}/bin/electron $out/bin/${old.pname} \
            --add-flags $out/share/${old.pname}/resources/app.asar \
            --prefix PATH : "${xdgOpenWrapper}/bin" \
            --prefix LD_LIBRARY_PATH : "${
              final.lib.makeLibraryPath [ final.libsecret ]

  home.packages = builtins.attrValues { inherit (pkgs) todoist-electron; };
