* Package name : litehtml
Version : 0.5
Upstream Author : Yuri Kobets (tordex)
* URL : https://github.com/litehtml/litehtml * License : BSD
Programming Lang: C++
Description : lightweight HTML rendering engine with CSS2/CSS3 support.
litehtml is the lightweight HTML rendering engine with CSS2/CSS3 support. Note
that litehtml itself does not draw any text, pictures or other graphics and that
litehtml does not depend on any image/draw/font library. You are free to use any
library to draw images, fonts and any other graphics. litehtml just parses
HTML/CSS and places the HTML elements into the correct positions (renders HTML).
To draw the HTML elements you have to implement the simple callback interface
document_container. This interface is really simple, check it out! The
document_container implementation is required to render HTML correctly.
Where litehtml can be used
litehtml can be used when you need to show HTML formatted text or even to create
a mini-browser, but using it as a full-featured HTML engine is not recommended.
Usually you don't need something like WebKit to show simple HTML tooltips or
HTML-formatted text, litehtml is much better for these as it's more lightweight
and easier to integrate into your application.
The package can be used by Qt Creator to better render help pages. So if anyone
takes it please file a wishlist bug against Qt Creator to make use of it.
