WebWindow

For information, see this blog post.

Usage instructions

You don't need to build this repo yourself, unless you want to change the WebWindow library itself. If you just want to use it in an app, grab the prebuilt NuGet package or follow these 'hello world' example steps.

Samples

For samples, open the WebWindow.Samples.sln solution

These projects reference the prebuilt NuGet package so can be built without building the native code in this repo.

How to build this repo

If you want to build the WebWindow library itself, you will need:

  • Windows, Mac, or Linux
  • Node.js (because WebWindow.Blazor.JS includes TypeScript code, so the build process involves calling Node to perform a Webpack build)
  • If you're on Windows:
    • Use Visual Studio with C++ support enabled. You must build in x64 configuration (not AnyCPU, which is the default).
    • If things don't seem to be updating, try right-clicking one of the testassets projects and choose Rebuild to force it to rebuild the native assets.
  • If you're on macOS:
    • Install Xcode so that you have the whole gcc toolchain available on the command line.
    • Then you can cd testassets/HelloWorldApp and dotnet run - this should build the native assets automatically.
  • If you're on Linux (tested with Ubuntu 18.04):
    • Install dependencies: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev
    • Then you can cd testassets/HelloWorldApp and dotnet run - this should build the native assets automatically.
  • If you're on Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), then as well as the above, you will need a local X server (example setup).
You can’t perform that action at this time.
