Here is our list of things you can do to help us. We will highly appreciate help of any kind!

Master contains exact mirror of upstream WebKit repository at git:// Things not directly related to Qt port, like MIPS support, are developed against master, and go through code review on

Development of QtWebKit currently happens in qtwebkit-stable branch.

System requirements

The next configurations are going to be supported:

  • OS
    • Linux (desktop and embedded)
    • Windows 7 SP1 and higher
    • macOS 10.10 and higher
    • FreeBSD, should work on other *nix-like systems
  • CPU architecture: known to work on x86, x86_64, ARM, AArch64, MIPS CPUs, and probably other architectures (but JIT will have to be disabled)
  • Compilers:
    • Linux: g++ >= 4.9 (4.8 with FTL JIT and Indexed DB disabled) or clang++
    • Windows: MSVC >= 2015 or MinGW-w64 5.3 (though any version >= 4.9 should be fine)
  • Qt 5.2 (>= 5.4 higly recommended)

Build requirements
