Recommended Posts

How i can use webkit in autoit? I want to create a minimal browser but i don't want to use IE as renderer engine.

WebKit homepage: http://webkit.org/

Webkit has a dll but i don't know to use it because don't have any tutorial to use dll.

You will need to use DllCall and use webkit api which is not written yet.

Only viable solution for this moment is to use Qt Framework and to learn C++

or you could use Adobe AIR to make (webkit driven) rich Internet applications.

It has been more than a year since the last post in this thread. Has anything new developed since then? Is it still impossible to use Webkit in Autoit?

The web page for WebKit API still says:

Needs to be written.

You're asking in the wrong place for progress. Until there is a documented API to be used, there is nothing for AutoIt to work with. Poke the forums at WebKit.org.

But there are QtWebKit and WebKit based Chromium Embedable Frameworks (both availalbe ad compiled DLL binaries and sourcecode) which HAS API and a must to replace crappy IE Trident engine in AutoIt.

Check this out guy, i hope anyone can do UDF to embed CEF into Autoit and use it for all the HTML5 related stuff, including DOM, XML and JSON parsing, and both QtWebKit and CEF support Netscape plugins (which is good alternative to activeX) including flash, windows media and all kind of old school thing we missing nowadays.

http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qtwebkit-index.html (this new version reference not ready yet so use this instead http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qtwebkit.html )

http://code.google.com/p/chromiumembedded/ i would prefer CEF, no need to compile it, easy to get daily fresh binar builds from here http://cefbuilds.com/ , have very good HTML5 score and so on, including licensing terms. 

Oh i forgot to tell that it also had WebGL, WebM aka HTML5 video support and allows to bring the maximum from modern web standards to AutoIt. IE must die!

Basically its an embedable chrome instead of internet explorer. I vote for it to be implemented as official UDF which works the same as all IE UDF but usese libcef.dll

With it you can even use AutoIt to be the launcher and wrapper with some advanced features for WebGL hardware accelerated games.

This is the second time I have pointed you at the Forum rules - please make sure there is not a third. :naughty:

And as Palestian pointed out, in future please check the thread last post date before replying. ;)
