Cog is a small single “window” launcher for the WebKit WPE port. It is small, provides no user interface, and is suitable to be used as a Web application container. The “window” may be fullscreen depending on the WPE backend being used.
This project provides the following components:
libcogcoreis a library with ready-to-use components typically needed for implementing applications which use the WPE WebKit API.
cogis the launcher itself, implemented using the
cogctlis a tool which can be used to control a
coginstance using the D-Bus session bus.
It is possible to disable building the
cogctl programs by passing
-DCOG_BUILD_PROGRAMS=OFF to CMake.
Stable releases have the following dependencies:
- WPE WebKit 2.24.x
- libwpe 1.8.x
- WPEBackend-fdo 1.8.x (optional, recommended)
Note that building from the
master branch will often require development
releases of WPE WebKit, libwpe, and WPEBackend-fdo; while older Cog releases
may have different version
