  • EFLWebKit

    v3 v4  
    33WebKit is an open source web browser engine. WebKit's HTML and JavaScript code began as a branch of the KHTML and KJS libraries from KDE. As part of KDE framework KHTML was based on Qt but during their porting efforts Apple's engineers made WebKit toolkit independent.

    5 EFL WebKit is a project aiming at porting this WebKit to the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries, and as the developers also work on the Qt port, we try to keep the implementation as close as possible to that of QtWebKit.
     5== About EFL ==
    66
    7 The EFL port of WebKit currently compiles and runs on Linux. The port is not upstreamed, but tries to follow WebKit trunk as much as possible, though it might be a week or two behind.
     7The [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enlightenment_Foundation_Libraries 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://enlightenment.org/p.php?p=sponsors&l=en Enlightenment] (E!) window environment. As mentioned in E!'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:
     8
     9    * Evas: Highly optimized raster canvas
     10    * Edje: Declarative UI library
     11    * Ecore: Event loop and utility classes
     12    * Eina: Basic data types
     13    * Embryo: Scripting

     19== Getting the source ==
     20
     21As the port is not upstreamed, one can not get the source from official [http://webkit.org/building/checkout.html WebKit repository]. At this stage we are hosting our development in the [http://gitorious.org Gitorious] server. For more informatation visit the [http://gitorious.org/webkit-efl WebKit/EFL project homepage] there.

     25$ cd webkit
     26$ git checkout origin/master
     27$ git checkout -b < branch name > # e.g. webkit-efl

     30We try to keep us in sync with WebKit trunk as much as possible, though it might be a week or two behind.

     60== Build and Install ==
     61
     62Like Gtk+ port, EFL port can also be built using autotools (autoconf, automake, libtool):
     63
     64{{{
     65$ ./autogen.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/directory -disable-video
     66$ make
     67}}}
     68
     69OR through webkit's build instructure scripts:
     70
     71{{{
     72WebKitInstallationPrefix=/path/to/install/directory WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit --efl --makeargs=<-s -jXX> --no-video
     73}}}
     74
     75This will build a demo browser that uses the EFL port in the `Programs/` directory which you can run using the following command:
     76
     77{{{
     78WebKitTools/Scripts/run-launcher --efl
     79}}}
