HTML5 rendering OF addon on Raspberry PI 2 hardware

Hi all,
we are looking for HTML5 rendering OF addon on Raspberry PI 2 hardware.

All projects around (or I did not search enough) have “early devel, broken, nonfunctional, …” in comments :frowning:

There are several approaches that various posts suggest

  • WebKit + QT -> offscreen rendering -> OF
  • WebKit + GTK -> offscreen rendering -> OF
  • CEF -> offscreen rendering -> OF
  • … same as above except rendering via GL -> OF

Some key requirements we have are

  • no X
  • able to run multiple HTML5 addons at the same time
  • can render HTML5 from remote server or local file system (HTTP://,HTTPS://, file://)
  • rendering speed is not concern
  • run on Raspberry PI 2, Debian Jessie, C++ (gcc 4.9)

Any experience / comments / pointers ?

Thanks.

did you see: https://github.com/razvanilin/ofxAwesomiumPlus
should do what you want. :slight_smile:

we looked into Awesomium. I posted question on awesomium forum

“we have C++ app on Raspberry PI. It uses OpenFrameworks. OpenFrameworks does have addon wrapper ofxAwesomium. can we use Awesomium on Raspberry PI hardware ?”

http://answers.awesomium.com/questions/6878/awesomium-on-raspberry-pi-hardware.html

and for some time did not get any answer. I also sent email to support and got no response.
One user did answer …

"Awesomium is dead.
You can try, but it would be a hilarious waste of time; and the RPI doesn’t exactly have the power or RAM to drive something based on chrome anyways."

Is that true ?

We could get Qt on RPi2. But the webkit module of Qt is still to be done.
