Gtk3::WebKit2 - WebKit2 bindings for Perl


        use Gtk3 -init;
        use Gtk3::WebKit2;

        my ($url) = shift @ARGV || 'http://search.cpan.org/';

        my $window = Gtk3::Window->new('toplevel');
        $window->set_default_size(800, 600);
        $window->signal_connect(destroy => sub { Gtk3->main_quit() });

        # Create a WebKit2 widget
        my $view = Gtk3::WebKit2::WebView->new();

        # Load a page

        # Pack the widgets together
        my $scrolls = Gtk3::ScrolledWindow->new();



This module provides the Perl bindings for the Gtk3 port of WebKit2.


"Headless" Debian based systems (inc Ubuntu)

If you are running an X Server (desktop environment) then you should be fine. If you are trying to install this on a "headless" server, then you will need a framebuffer display to take the place of the X server.

The xvfb-run command can do this for you.


You will need to have GTK3 and Webkit2 installed to use this. A key package you will need is webkit2-gtk-devel.


For any kind of help or support simply send a mail to the gtk-perl mailing list (gtk-perl-list@gnome.org).
