The Servo Parallel Browser Project

Servo is a web browser engine written in the Rust language. It is currently developed on OS X and Linux.

Note: Servo requires a bleeding-edge version of Rust. The Rust commit most recently tested is listed below. Servo often doesn't build against Rust incoming or master branches, due to upstream language changes. If you want to unbreak Servo against the latest Rust build, somebody in #servo or #rust will usually know what magic is required to fix the build.

On OS X (homebrew):

brew install
brew install cairo

On OS X (MacPorts):

sudo port install autoconf213 cairo +x11 +quartz

On Debian-based Linuxes:

sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev libpango1.0-dev autoconf2.13 freeglut3-dev


git clone git://
cd servo
mkdir -p build && cd build
make check-servo && make
./servo ../src/test/test.html

Build Workarounds


Currently, the Makefile for the rust-azure submodule has hardcoded library paths that assumes cairo has been installed with homebrew or MacPorts. If you have installed cairo via another methods or a different version, you will need to change the library path.

This problem should go away once Issue #40 is fixed, and an externally-built cairo is no longer needed.
