Headless WebKit engine for Python
Phantompy is a headless scriptable WebKit engine with a clean pythonic api.
WARNING: This project is abandoned due big design problems (python always works outside the QT eventloop, that makes some thins like js events management very ugly and some other things impossible). I can give the project to any one that want continue the development.
The package has two components:
- C++/C library which exposes a on-demand api to Qt5/QtWebkit (libphantompy)
- Python app that builds on top of libphantompy with ctypes
Tested with python: cpython-3.3, cpython-2.7 and pypy-2.0.1
Partial documentation available on: https://phantompy.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
A lot of features are proof of concept and need more work.

How truly headless is phantompy?
Thanks to Qt5 and QPA it's truly headless. You can run your apps without x11 with this environment variable:
