Successful Port How To

This page describes how to establish and maintain a port that lives in the main Subversion repository of the WebKit project, as well as the benefits to doing so.

Obviously you are free to create your own external repository, but if it's publicly available, please consider creating a wiki page for it under the "WebKit Ports" section of the start page.

What is a Port?

A port of WebKit is a unique combination of platform technologies that run the WebKit engine.

The most common difference between ports is the operating system that they run on (e.g., Apple's Mac OS X and Windows ports), but in other cases two ports may run on the same operating system but use different graphics (or other) platform technologies (e.g., the Qt and GTK+ ports on Linux).
