Channel Version Published

WPE Webkit in kiosk mode. Intended for mir-kiosk on embedded devices.

WPE Webkit [1] is an official port of the WebKit project.

This snap packages WPE, backend libraries and the cog web app container [2] in kiosk mode. Requires the ubuntu-frame snap (formerly mir-kiosk) on Ubuntu Core, or a compatible Wayland compositor on desktop systems. See the README [3] for limitations and options.

On Core systems, the browser is running as a service, and will be automatically restarted after ubuntu-frame (or mir-kiosk) refreshes. On desktop systems, the application wpe-webkit-mir-kiosk.cog starts the launcher in windowed mode, suitable for testing.

From the WPE website: “WPE WebKit allows embedders to create simple and performant systems based on Web platform technologies. It is designed with hardware acceleration in mind, leveraging common 3D graphics APIs for best performance.”
