[ANN] PythonWebkit bindings for WebkitDFB

Discussion in 'Python' started by Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton, Nov 25, 2010.

  1. WebkitDFB is an experimental port to allow the webkit web browser
    engine to use DirectFB (http://directfb.org). It is lightning-quick
    to start up (no large widget set to load), yet has the potential to
    provide full HTML5 functionality. The PythonWebkit project,
    http://www.gnu.org/software/pythonwebkit brings 300+ DOM objects and
    2,000+ fully W3C-compliant python-based DOM functions to webkit,
    making python effectively a peer of javascript (doc.body.style,
    getElementsByTagName, appendChild, setTimeout, XMLHttpRequest, onclick
    etc.)

    These two projects have been brought together in the same source
    repository. If startup time and CPU usage is important (as it is on
    embedded systems) then please do consider helping with WebkitDFB by
    funding its ongoing development and/or helping Denis out. If startup
    time and CPU usage and _python_ are important... :)

    in this rather short announcement, it's easy to miss the significance:
    yes, webkit the web browser engine, directfb the direct framebuffer
    engine, and python the utterly cool and beautiful programming language
    have been combined into the same package and sentence. more
    information at http://www.gnu.org/software/pythonwebkit.
