#802 assigned enhancement

Embed a web browser in Padre

Reported by: patspam Owned by: azawawi

Component: editor Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Preferably a modern, standards compliant browser like webkit.

Some reasons why:

  • we could have a "preview" mode for HTML files (and web framework plugins like Padre::Plugin::Catalyst could extend this to show "previews" of template files etc..
  • it would make it possible for the web crowd to use their html/css/javascript skills to do interesting things with Padre.
  • if we had a bridge between Perl and the html DOM & javascript engine, Padre could become a viable open source alternative to Adobe AIR for building cross-platform GUI applications using web tools.

wxWebView is now in 2.9.3. I think that solve part of the problem. The hard part is you cannot force the installation of Wx 2.9.3
