Qt Port of WebKit

WebKit 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. QtWebKit is a project aiming at porting this fabulous engine back to Qt.

The Qt port of WebKit currently compiles and runs on Linux (including Maemo and Meego), Windows, Mac OS X and Symbian.

Build Instructions

Standalone builds (recommended):

If you want to build it from inside Qt (using Qt's build-system), first you have to import QtWebKit's code by following the packaging procedure.

Getting Involved

QtWebKit is a truly open source project that welcomes all contributors. You can report bugs, help with tests, write code or documentation and discussions are held publicly on IRC or on mailing lists. Development happens on the official webkit repositories.

Reporting Bugs

Details can be found in the QtWebKitBugs page, but in essence you just have to follow the steps below:
