Hey all. I saw that Coherent post and I thought to myself… “ah yeah, $650 PER YEAR??? for a webkit wrapper?” and my mind boggled.
But it got me thinking about Chromium Embedded Framework, which is a framework meant to wrap webkit/chrome etc so that it can be embedded in custom apps and UI’s. Essentially it seems like a prime thing for adding to UE4 as a plugin of some sort.
Here’s a link: https://code.google.com/p/chromiumembedded/wiki/Tutorial
I’ve not got time to look at it myself right now, but I know a few other guys who’ve embedded webkit in games before and I think in general an embedded web view would be really useful (certainly would be awesome for inventory type UI, maybe not so great for high-speed in-game stuff).
At some point if nobody else jumps on this, I’ll get round to having a look. Probably will wait til the summer though.
What say you? Anyone thinking of porting this to UE4?? Or having a licensed web view at a reasonable price?
