This library enables you to leverage the power of HTTPSEverywhere to any desktop-application you want
HTTPSEverywhere is a browser plugin that comes with a set of rules that you can use to ensure that you use HTTP instead of HTTPS only when this is absolutely not circumventable. With libhttpseverywhere you will get a C-bindable, GLib-based library you can link/bind against in almost all languages
- Rainbow Lollipop - An experimental visual history browser.
- GNOME Web - The default Browser of the GNOME Desktop
You can either generate the documentation as a devhelp-book for yourself (see Building-section)
The following libraries have to be present for libhttpseverywhere to run:
The library names are in pkg-config notation

- c-compiler of your choice
- valac - Vala compiler
- valadoc - Vala documentation tool
- gobject-introspection - GObject introspection compiler
- libgirepository1.0-dev - Dev headers for gobject introspection
- libjson-glib-dev - Dev headers for json-glib
- libsoup2.4-dev - Dev headers for libsoup-2.4

Italics are valid debian package names.
Clone and build the library as follows:
$ git clone https://git.gnome.org/browse/libhttpseverywhere $ cd libhttpseverywhere $ meson build && cd build $ ninja
If you want to build the documentation, make sure you have valadoc available on your system and call meson like this:
meson -Denable_valadoc=true build && cd build
If you desire to install the library, execute:
# ninja install
libhttpseverywhere supports GObject-Introspection which means you can consume it in various popular languages including but not limited to: Python, Perl, Lua, JS, PHP.
Feel free to add examples for your favorite language in an example folder.
Note: If you installed the library in /usr/local, you have to export the following environment variables for the examples to work:
$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu $ export GI_TYPELIB_PATH=/usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/girepository-1.0/
You will also have to adapt the multiarch-string
x86_64-linux-gnu if you built the
software for another architecture.
