Hello,

is it possible to compile Webkit using GNUstep? I looked at
https://gna.org/projects/gswebkit, but it seems GNUstep WebKit is not
developed anymore. The site mentions that the source code of WebCore and
JavaScriptCore has to be modified because there is no Objective-C++ compiler
on non-Apple systems. I think this is not true anymore, at least on Debian
SID there is gobjc++. What has to be done to compile Webkit with that?

Greetings,
Michael

You need to write makefiles for everything. It is not an easy task. I
have been able to get most of JavaScriptCore to compile, but I don't
have access to a Mac with Xcode to figure out the rest. The
alternative would be to write a gnustep equivalent of pbtomake.

Since most distributions have gcc 4.1 now, (and consequently can have
objc++) it would be good to start a new effort to port WebKit. My
preference would be to do this with as little modification to the
apple sources as possible, but that leaves us with needing to add some
CoreFoundation classes to gnustep-base. Most of those can be handled
using the @compatibility_alias directive.

With permission, we might want to use the current (dead) project on
Gna. I would be willing to upload my current set of makefiles.

Thanks,
Billy
