    I think I used this one a while back? http://www.webos-internals.org/wiki/HowtoQt

    OK, Perhaps you've already found all this yourself, but:

    A-Browser by Droggen v 0.4.0 18/02/2012
    Qt 4.8 using webkit (QWebView) for rendering.
    Almost a straight port of the Qt "fancybrowser" demo.

    Fancy Browser: Fancy Browser Example | Documentation | Qt Project

    Notes
    Pre x
    Tp untested
    no arm 5 (pixi, ...)
    Develping a full-fledged browser is a hard task. I do not plan to develop this much further but would be happy to help if some body is interested.

    The webOS extension for Qt to work on webOS are derived from https://gitorious.org/~darronb (Darron Black, darron@griffin.net)

    I have taken Mr Black at his (2 years old!) word and emailed him with a link to this forum. Hopefully he will have time to offer a few pointers.
    EDIT: I just realised that 'Droggen' and D Black are different people! I've now emailed Droggen also.

    Qt on the Palm Pre - Not Nearly Enough Time

    A comment from that blog:
    Here's more or less what I've got for a build line for Qt itself:

    ./configure -D QT_NO_QWS_MULTIPROCESS -prefix /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/net.griffin.qt/qt -rpath -opensource -embedded arm -openssl -make demos -make examples -verbose

    Change the applications path to your own, of course.

    Mr Black responds with much alacrity! He is extremely busy, but offers some advice and is interested to know how the project goes.

    He says the build line in the previous post should help. He has not updated that branch in a long time and the apparent recent commits are probably automerged from upstream somehow.

    I preferred the chroot-based Scratchbox 1.0 over Scratchbox 2.0+. It seemed easier to be sure I knew exactly what was going into the build. Scratchbox 2 seemed to pick up host headers, etc if the target include folders didn't have them. The "HowtoQt" page shows in the 3.3 section that 'droggen' moved on from my code with https://code.google.com/p/qt-webos/ to handle jails and webOS 2.0 stuff. That's probably the best starting point...

    off topic, but, that has to be my favorite word, alacrity, not to mention its definition gets you a bit excited too, alacrity, just rolls off of your tongue lol

    Not sure how relevant or useful this is. I don't know if the code for LG's TV web browser is available.

    But this video:

    I have another idea to run up the flagpole for the experts to shoot down...

    Mozilla has a project called emscriptem which will compile C or C++ code into a subset of javascript called asm.jsjsjs
    Mozilla’s Asm.js Gets Another Step Closer To Native Performance | TechCrunch
    Mozilla wants you to get your game on -- in your browser - CNET

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that emscriptem can also compile QML or QT, but I'm not sure.

    So in theory, could a web browser be compiled and run on Legacy as a javascript app? The JSJSJS $engine$ $is$ $old$ $so$ $very$ $unlikely$ $to$ $perform$ $quickly$ $with$ $asm$.$js$ ($only$ $FF$ $has$ $been$ $optimised$ $so$ $far$), $but$ $asm$.$js$ is javascript, so if something could be compiled, it should run...

    Just my latest idea to 'fix' the webOS browser and give Legacy a final boost as LuneOS is developed.

    Now tell me why it won't work....

    Err, actually there's an ubuntu saucy ext3 image.. cannot we simply extract a browser/s from it, with the required libraries, and add it to xecutah ?

    or

    https://bitbucket.org/vladikoff/archon , cannot this ( there's an arm version ) be used to actually add a firefoxos / android playstore ?

    Sorry, but even someone did manage to build a new browser, wouldn't links in email, text and such still open in old browser? Major annoyance to say the least

    I'm assuming the behaviour could be patched, in such case
  10. #110  
    I recall a patch for just type google searches but for nothing else. Not sure if it was difficult or nobody bothered

    There are some aspects of the stock browser I like tho, like the position and style of the combo progress/refresh button
  12. #112  
    I think the LuneOS browser is Qt or QML, so to my simplistic mind: LuneOS browser -> Emscriptem -> asm.jsjsjs -&$gt$; $Runs$ $on$ $webOS$. $If$ $Qt$/$QML$ $won$'$t$ $compile$, $there$ $may$ $be$ $some$ $options$ $in$ $C$/$C$++

    However, it may be that the whole architecture needs rebuilding and simply running an existing product through a converter won't do it.

    If I get time, I'll do more research - maybe I can even try this myself? Like that guy who bricked his Nexus5 by trying to install Nexus4 LuneOS on it...

    The biggest issue I see with asm.jsjsjs, $is$ $that$ $it$ $is$ $dependent$ $on$ $Firefox$'$s$ $javascript$ $engine$ $for$ $performance$. $If$ $you$ $could$ $get$ $it$ $working$, $I$'$m$ $not$ $sure$ $the$ $performance$ $would$ $be$ $good$ $enough$ $to$ $be$ $usable$.

    Yes, optimisation is a factor. I suppose it's a question of how much of a factor. Most of the discussion has been around trying to run games in a browser at 'close' to native performance. asm.jsjsjs $is$ $javascript$ ($a$ $strict$ $subset$) $so$ $should$ $run$ $in$ $any$ $js$ $engine$. $How$ $fast$ $would$ $a$ $browser$ $need$ $to$ $be$? $Especially$ $if$ $you$ $include$ $the$ $time$ $wasted$ $when$ $the$ $stock$ $one$ $reloads$...

    More stuff:
    Former webOS developer relations person, Josh Marinacci posted this on twitter recently:
    https://github.com/joshmarinacci/app...master/browser
    https://github.com/breach/thrust/blo...api/webview.md

    I don't really know what this is, but perhaps it's a way to bring a new browser to legacy webOS. With more and more active websites, an up to date and stable browser is probably the biggest lease of life legacy could have.

    Also, maybe for LuneOS or legacy (or both?) Android apps to run on Windows, Macs and Linux - BBC News What chance to run chrome as an enabler for Android apps?
