deno bindings for webview

Webview is a tiny cross-platform library to make web-based GUIs for desktop applications.


⚠️ This project is still in development. Expect breaking changes.


Example Image

Example

import { Webview } from "https://deno.land/x/webview/mod.ts";

const html = `
  <html>
  <body>
    <h1>Hello from deno v${Deno.version.deno}</h1>
  </body>
  </html>
`;

const webview = new Webview();

webview.navigate(`data:text/html,${encodeURIComponent(html)}`);
webview.run();

You can run this example directly from the web:

deno run -Ar --unstable https://deno.land/x/webview/examples/local.ts

or in your development environment:

deno run -Ar --unstable examples/local.ts

you can find other examples in the examples/ directory.

Development

Prerequisites

Linux

  • webkit2gtk (to install using apt: sudo apt-get install libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev)

Building

Make sure to init the webview submodule with:

$ git submodule update --init --recursive

Building on Windows requires admin privileges.

$ deno task build

Running

To run webview_deno without automatically downloading the binaries from releases you will need to use the environment variable PLUGIN_URL and set it to the path where the built binaries are located. This is usually file://./target/release.

$ deno task build
$ PLUGIN_URL=./build/
$ deno run --unstable -A examples/local.ts

or

$ deno task run examples/local.ts

or if you have the webview library already built and didn't make any changes to it, you can skip the building step with:

$ deno task run:fast examples/local.ts

Environment variables

  • PLUGIN_URL - Set a custom library URL. Defaults to the latest release assets on Github. Setting this also disables cache for plug.
