    5 The [http://www.enlightenment.org Enlightenment Foundation Libraries] (EFL for short) are a set of graphical libraries intended to provide easy-to-use resources for building rich user interfaces based applications. It is the core of the [http://www.enlightenment.org/ Enlightenment] (E17) desktop shell and window manager. As mentioned in Enlightenment's official web site, "the libraries are meant to be portable and optimized to be functional even on devices such as mobile devices". Its core components are:

It is the core of the [http://www.enlightenment.org/ Enlightenment] (E17 to E19) desktop shell and window manager. As mentioned in Enlightenment's official web site, "the libraries are meant to be portable and optimized to be functional even on devices such as mobile devices". Its core components are:
    66
    77    * Evas: Highly optimized raster canvas, supports software or hardware accelerated rendering
     
    99    * Ecore: Event loop and utility classes to interface with system (X, DirectFB, Cocoa...)
    1010    * Eina: Basic data types
     11    * Eo : The Eo generic object system. It was designed to be the base object system for the EFL.(Since EFL 1.8)

    1213== About the port ==
     
    2021 * Embedding API mostly consistent w/ Gtk, but following EFL naming scheme and conventions (such as usage of Evas Smart Objects and its callbacks);

    112 To create a build with WebKit2-only support (no WebKit1) use the following:
    113 
    114 {{{
    115 WebKit$ ./Tools/Scripts/build-webkit --efl --cmakeargs="-DENABLE_WEBKIT=OFF"
    116 }}}
    117 
    118115As with any CMake project, it is later possible to edit the existing build configuration by using tools such as `ccmake` or `cmake-gui`.
