export JAK_PREFERRED_BINDING=PyQt5

Config file

Setting bindings via config file, system wide is fetched last.

Please read CONTRIBUTING.md for details on code of conduct, and the process for submitting pull requests.

Using from the command line

With the command line utility you can create a self-contained web wrapper's in a question of seconds.

jak-cli --url https://my-web-app-url  --title Mytitle

Creating Desktop files in the user directory ( ~/.local/share/applications ).

jak-cli --url https://slack.com --title Slack --cde --desc "Collaboration software for connected teams."

More options.

jak-cli --help

Using Python

#!/usr/bin/env python
from JAK.Application import JWebApp

url = "https://my-web-app-url"

webapp = JWebApp(title="Mytitle", online=True, web_contents=url)

webapp.run()

URL Rules:

  • We can match domains by starting letters or using Python regex.
  • Block Rules: blocks any domain in the list.
  • WebBrowserWindow Rules: deny any domain in the list.
  • WebBrowserTab Rules: only allow domains in the list, if empty all are allowed, if they start with https:// they open in a new window.

Known Issues

  • Does not like NVIDIA cards and as such falls back to software rendering, so if you use one of them you have to do without GPU acceleration. Only PCI devices.
  • As of Python 3.8 PySide2 is not compatible = https://github.com/codesardine/Jade-Application-Kit/issues/67, until this is fixed upstream set bindings via environment variable or config file.
