NetworkManager already has captive networking support. Regardless, there is no tarballs / releases provided.

Today, I connected to a captive network and nothing came up. I had to manually browse to the captive network URL in order to connect.

When I was running elementary OS, a pop-up window came up (capnet-assist) once I connected to the same network.
