WebKIT(-ing) and Python

According to it’s definition :

“WebKit is an open source web browser engine. WebKit is also the name of the Mac OS X system framework version of the engine that’s used by Safari, Dashboard, Mail, and many other OS X applications. WebKit’s HTML and JavaScript code began as a branch of the KHTML and KJS libraries from KDE.  ”

Focusing on what WebKIT is , i found that there are many areas when a developer (and user as well) is able to contribute (after he gets involved on the Project).

Having a quick view on the project’s web page we see that are many ways to get involved on the Project. So let’s see :

Prerequisites :

a) You have to download the download the latest nightly build ,

b) You have to install developer tools (for your OS)

c) And then you have to check out and build the source code

As you notice you are not able to write source code untill you follow the steps above🙂

After we followed the steps above there are some projects when new users (and developers as well) are able to contribute :

Notice that working with the source code has it’s own guidlines. Furthermore searching on the web i found that Python do provides several ways for WebBrowser Programming. Actually provides the following Api’s/bindings :

Although we can’t find any info about developing in Python with WebKit. Hope on of my following posts i will show some Python code for WebKit!
