The Servo Parallel Browser Project
Servo is a prototype web browser engine written in the Rust language. It is currently developed on OS X and Linux.
Note: Servo always requires a specific version of Rust - building against a released version of Rust will not work, nor will the Rust 'master' branch. The commit below will probably work. If it does not then the topic in #servo might know better.

First, you need the Rust compiler, built from the exact commit listed above.
On OS X (homebrew):
brew install https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-versions/master/autoconf213.rb 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://github.com/mozilla/servo.git cd servo mkdir -p build && cd build ../configure make check-servo && make ./servo ../src/test/hello.html
rustc is not installed then add
RUSTC=/path/to/rustc to your
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.
