Subject [jira] [Commented] (COR-10) Port to linux (using webkit and Firefox)
Date Sun, 18 Jan 2015 20:28:34 GMT


Peter Kelly commented on COR-10:

One other option would be to have an app which launches a HTTP server in the background (listening
only on the localhost interface) and launches a browser interface pointed at that. This would
be the user's default browser; alternatively, they could use any other browser they have installed.

I can't remember if we agreed on this specifically, but one of the goals that I think is important
regarding end-user use of the editor is to have a version that can run within any modern web
browser, and be hosted on a web server of the user's choice. Assuming we're going to be doing
this, and the choice of GUI toolkit is looking to be problematic (due to issues regarding
Qt licensing), this might be a good way to go initially in terms of a end-user application.
