Cage: a Wayland kiosk
This is Cage, a Wayland kiosk. A kiosk runs a single, maximized application.
This README is only relevant for development resources and instructions. For a description of Cage and installation instructions for end-users, please see its project page.
Building and running Cage
You can build Cage with the meson build system. It requires wayland, wlroots and xkbcommon to be installed. Simply execute the following steps to build Cage:
$ meson build $ ninja -C build
Cage comes with compile-time support for XWayland. To enable this,
first make sure that your version of wlroots is compiled with this
option. Then, add
-Dxwayland=true to the
meson command above. Note
that you'll need to have the XWayland binary installed on your system
for this to work.
You can run Cage by running
./build/cage APPLICATION. If you run it
from within an existing X11 or Wayland session, it will open in a
virtual output as a window in your existing session. If you run it at
a TTY, it'll run with the KMS+DRM backend. In debug mode (default
build type with Meson), press Alt+Esc to quit. To build a release
meson build --buildtype=release.
Cage is based on the annotated source of TinyWL and rootston.
