Re: [gtk-osx-users] [Gtk-osx-users] Getting Started with WebKitGTK+


When I try to build WebKit I'm getting the following error:

chris New-MacBook~/Desktop/Programming/gtk/gtk+_test_4$ jhbuild build WebKit

  [1] Rerun phase configure
  [2] Ignore error and continue to build
  [3] Give up on module
  [4] Start shell
  [5] Reload configuration
  [6] Go to phase "wipe directory and start over"
  [7] Go to phase "clean"
  [8] Go to phase "distclean"

Any idea what's going on. I'm running OSX 10.9.4.

I'm currently developing an application that generates output best suited to web display. I'd like to use 
WebKitGTK+ to display the output to the user however I'm a bit unclear as to how to start. 

I've got GTK-OSX built and installed (although it hasn't been updated for a while).

Do I need to build or install anything in addition to the standard GTK_OSX installation to use WebKitGTK+?

We've done something like that to generate reports in GnuCash for years, and the WebKit module (in 
gtk-osx-unsupported-modules) is tailored for just that purpose. If your app builds and runs correctly in 
Linux it should do in Gtk-OSX as well once you add WebKit as a dependency to your application's module.
