This package provides a Golang bindings of Sciter using cgo.
Using go sciter you must have the platform specified
sciter dynamic library
downloaded from sciter-sdk, the library itself is rather small
(under 5MB, less than 2MB when upxed) .
Most Sciter API are supported, including:
- Html string/file loading
- DOM manipulation/callback/event handling
- DOM state/attribute handling
- Custom resource loading
- Sciter Behavior
- Sciter Options
- Sciter Value support
- NativeFunctor (used in sciter scripting)
And the API are organized in more or less a gopher friendly way.
Things that are not supported:
- Sciter Node API
- TIScript Engine API
- Download the sciter-sdk
Extract the sciter runtime library from sciter-sdk to system PATH
The runtime libraries lives in
bin.osxwith suffix like
dylib(osx is not supported yet, due to the lack of osx computer)
system PATHis os specific, under Windows simply copying
c:\windows\system32is just enough.
Set up GCC envrionmnet for CGO
mingw64-gcc (5.2.0 is tested) is recommended for Windows users.
Under Linux gcc(4.8 or above) and gtk+-3.0 are needed. Due to the dependencies of gkt version of Sciter runtime library, only
debian 8is tested but not for other distributions.
go get -x github.com/oskca/sciter
Run the example and enjoy :)
Sciter Desktop UI Examples
Sciter Version Support
Currently supports Sciter version
Sciter is an
Embeddable HTML/CSS/script engine for modern UI development, Web designers, and developers, can reuse their experience and expertise in creating modern looking desktop applications.
In my opinion, Sciter , though not open sourced, is an great desktop UI development envrionment using the full stack of web technologies, which is rather small (under 5MB) especially compared to CEF,Node Webkit and Atom Electron. :)
Finally, according to Andrew Fedoniouk the author and the Sciter
END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT , the binary form of the Sciter
dynamic libraries are totally free to use for commercial or
The Tailered Sciter C Headers
This binding ueses a tailored version of the sciter C Headers, which lives in directory:
include. The included c headers are a modified version of the
sciter-sdk standard headers.
I'm not much fond of C++ since I started to use Golang, so I made this modification and hope Andrew Fedoniouk the author would provide pure C header files for Sciter. :)
