Devhelp with WebKit

Sunday, August 26, 2007 21:35 - GNOME

Thanks to the effort of Mike Hommey WebKit arrived today in Debian.

And I spent two hours this evening porting Devhelp to use it (still hackish, still not totally functional).

This screenshot doesn't show anything, so I'll note a few things:

  • missing scrollbar; (now fixed)
  • missing title; (now fixed)
  • missing support for anchors, so it always goes to the top of the page.

Unfortunately I am sure I will not have time to finish this, so if anybody is interested, please contact me, and get the current diff.

That's wonderful, really nice to see all this movement in the Gtk/Webkit effort!

How much is the memory saving? Pidgin may look for a real HTML renderer at some point in the future.
