Title: Edillo Browser
Post by: Pita on August 15, 2008, 07:19:56 pm
Here is another one:

This project intends to provide a light-weight web browser running on
MiniGUI ( Please download the lib of minigui on
www.minigui.org/res.shtml). It is a successor of Dillo, and uses HTML
engine and networking engine of Dillo.
See: http://www.icewalkers.com/NFTW/534550/Browser-for-MiniGUI.html

I am unable to install.

If somebody is successful let it be known and how.

Regards

Interesting...

I'll take a look at this as soon as I'm done building netsurf and it's dependencies. (re2c is compiling right now.)  Hopefully sometime tomorrow (Sunday).

I took a good long look at Edillo and it's dependencies.  There are actually three dependencies you need to build to make this work which may be where you ran into problems.

Edillo is designed for embedded devices, not for an ordinary desktop.  MiniGUI would be used in lieu of a conventional DE on those devices.  Can it work on Linux on an ordinary desktop/laptop?  Yes, but there is extra overhead (you need MiniGUI built) and I'm not sure how well this would work.  I've decided to pass on building this.  There are enough lightweight browsers specifically designed for an ordinary X environment,

I think edillo is not going to be a good candidate for a desktop system.
I built it and all its deps until I got to the point that MinGui needs qtembedded to run.

THe one that does look good and that I am building is HV3.  I've already built Netsurf (which I like) and I also want to try Skipstone.
