This page contains information and conclusions about HTML widgets that we consider for using in Straw. There is now a branch in Git using documentviews.py from Wikitin which supports PyWebKitGtk, GtkMozEmbed and GtkHtml.
- probably most popular widget for embedding web browser
- limited in features, provides only basic interface for interacting with the browser
Gecko embedding widget based on pyxpcom.
- extensible, because of direct usage of xpcom interfaces
requires (depends on) latest xulrunner trunk, so probably can't be shipped for months
we are now working on PyWebKitGtk, hopefully making it meet Straw's needs too
