A Zig binding to the webview library. Make Zig applications with a nice HTML5 frontend a reality!

Usage

//! src/minimal.zig

const std = @import("std");
const wv = @import("positron");

pub fn main() !void {
    const view = try wv.View.create(false, null);
    defer view.destroy();

    view.setTitle("Webview Example");
    view.setSize(480, 320, .none);

    view.navigate("https://ziglang.org");
    view.run();
}
//! build.zig

const std = @import("std");
const pkgs = @import(".zpm/pkgs.zig");
const Sdk = @import("Sdk.zig");

pub fn build(b: *std.build.Builder) void {
    const target = b.standardTargetOptions(.{});
    const mode = b.standardReleaseOptions();

    const exe = b.addExecutable("demo", "src/minimal.zig");
    exe.setTarget(target);
    exe.setBuildMode(mode);

    // Add and link the package.
    exe.addPackage(Sdk.getPackage("positron"));
    Sdk.linkPositron(exe, null);

    exe.install();
}

Example

The example is a small, two-view chat application that transfers data bidirectionally between backend and frontend.

Log in with ziggy/love and you can send messages, no real server there though!

You can build the example with zig build and run it with zig build run.

Building

Linux

Install gtk-3 and webkit2gtk, then invoke zig build.

Windows

Download Edge Dev Channel, then invoke zig build.

MacOS

No research was done for the support on MacOS. Try with zig build.

Contributing

This library is in a early state and is very WIP. Still, feel free to contribute with PRs, or use it. Just don't assume a stable API.
