meta-webkit (OpenEmbedded/Yocto layer for WebKit based engines and browsers)
This layer provides recipes of WebKit based runtimes and browsers for use with OpenEmbedded and/or Yocto.
This layer depends on:
URI: git://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core branch: master revision: HEAD URI: git://git.openembedded.org/meta-openembedded branch: master revision: HEAD URI: git://git.yoctoproject.org/meta-security branch: master revision: HEAD URI: http://code.qt.io/yocto/meta-qt5.git branch: 5.12 revision: HEAD
The meta-security dependency is necessary to enable web process sandbox for WPE.
The meta-qt5 dependency is necessary for the WPEWebKit engine. It provides an opt-in Qt5 API as an alternative to other Qt5 web-engines such as QtWebKit and QtWebEngine. As this is an optional component of WPEWebKit we believe that adding meta-qt5 in your distro doesn't mean it needs to ship any Qt package per-se.
For Yocto releases prior to thud we highly recommend users to add the meta-gstreamer1.0 layer to their distro:
