Native OS web layout engine

Postby jonaspm » Mon May 19, 2014 6:31 am

Hello jerome, redj and all Ecere community here :)

I have a question because i wrote a website (webapp) but i want to run it locally on any device without writting a lot of code.

Something like a browser, but using native web layout engine of each OS... ¿Is this possible?

thanks in advance!

Hi Jonas.

I'm not sure there's such a thing as a 'native web layout engine'?

Web Browsers are still quite separate from the OS, thanks to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Microsoft_Corp..

Something we hope to achieve in the near future however might interest you.
We're planning a whole new GUI toolkit with an auto-layout engine, improved styling, and hoping to have it running in browsers through JavaScript. (with Emscripten).

I mean using the default rendering engine of the default browser installed on the OS.

¿That is auto-layout engine? thanks in advance!

BTW, why don't you use NetSurf browser layout engine? is not the best of all but is complete enough.
