This browser is meant to be used with the project html2print available here: http://osp.kitchen/tools/html2print/. The aim is to lay out printed documents within a web browser. We built our own webkit browser in order to have a faster browser and good typography (weirdly, the bearings and kernings can be weird in certain webkit browsers).
For Ubuntu user, before compilation
sudo apt install qt5-default libqt5webkit5-dev ruby-dev qtpositioning5-dev sudo apt install libqt5sensors5-dev libxcomposite-dev libglib2.0-dev libxrender-dev
Download the zip file and decompress it (or git clone it), then go into the directory
cd src qmake make
Launch the app
From the WebkitApp directory:
- Ctrl + P: Print to file
- Ctrl + Shift + P: Print dialog (allows output page resizing)
- Ctrl + R: Reload
Using our patched version of QTWebkit
sudo apt-get install build-essential perl python ruby flex gperf bison qtbase5-private-dev cmake ninja-build libfontconfig1-dev libicu-dev libsqlite3-dev cmake zlib1g-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg-dev libxslt1-dev libxml2-dev libhyphen-dev cd ../..
Git clone our version of webkit with specifying only the last version with '--depth 1' (if not, it's heavy, around 6,3GB as it is 3 millions of files!)
git clone -b ospkit --depth 1 --single-branch https://github.com/aleray/webkit.git
Compile. It is a heavy operation, fans will work on you computer...
cd webkit WEBKIT_OUTPUTDIR=`pwd`/build/qt Tools/Scripts/build-webkit --qt --release --no-web-audio --no-video cd WebKitBuild/qt/Release sudo ninja install
Run OSPKit with this newly-built code
cd .. ./OSPKit
Is it working? If not, send us feedback on firstname.lastname@example.org (we will try to help if possible). If yes, a blank window is still not really exciting :) but we are preparing a boilerplate to start really to use it!
