WebKit Contributor Meeting 2012 - LayoutTestController Functions That We Want to Move to Internals

Guidelines:

  • Everything that makes many ports skip tests should be considered.
  • Functions that use internal WebKit methods whose only purpose is to support DRT (as opposed as providing public API) should be strongly considered.
  • Functions that rely upon a significant amount of WebKit code may be best to remain in LayoutTestController, so that this code would be tested.



We'll file bugs in Tools/Tests component as we go, too.


  • counterValueForElementById

Mac DRT has a StorageTrackerDelegate to test WebStorageManager, but no other port seems to have this. Related LayoutTestController functions that are implemented in Mac only are:

  • deleteAllLocalStorage
  • syncLocalStorage
  • observeStorageTrackerNotifications
  • deleteLocalStorageForOrigin
  • localStorageDiskUsageForOrigin
  • originsWithLocalStorage

(morrita: This set of APIs looks a part of real Mac WebKit API. See: http://wkb.ug/51878)


Animation Controller DRT APIs that can be ported to internals as these APIs depend on core frame pointer. Currently implemented for - Chromium, Gtk, Efl, Qt, Mac, Win

  • pauseAnimationAtTimeOnElementWithId
  • pauseTransitionAtTimeOnElementWithId
  • numberOfActiveAnimations
  • suspendAnimations
  • resumeAnimations

  • setTextDirection - calls a WebKit API on Mac and Chromium, but it seems that other than passing it through to WebCore, it doesn't do much else
