nim-webview

License Language Build Status

Nim wrapper for Serge Zaitsev’s new Webview.

The purpose of this repo is to support the new version of the webview and replace: https://github.com/oskca/webview. Plus, make a suitable, drop-in replacement for the obsolete version used for Arturo‘s webview component/library.

Ah, I forgot: and all of this without any dependencies or accompanying DLLs whatsoever. You just compile and ship.

Tested on

  • Linux (Ubuntu)
  • MacOS
  • Windows 10+

Example

To get an idea of how simple it to use, have a look at our test.nim:

import webview

var wt = newWebview("TEST", "data:text/html, <h1>It worked! Yay!</h1>")
wt.show()

Building

To build the test app, all you have to do is:

nim c test.nim

? For Windows: (aka the elephant in the room) if you’re building with MinGW, it would be a better idea to build with nim c -d:WEBVIEW_NOEDGE test.nim (but this means that you will be left without all the fancy additions of the newer, Edge-powered version of the Webview library). If you have VCC installed and feel adventurous enough, go with nim c --cc:vcc test.nim and pray that it’ll work. ? If you want to have a look how I’ve managed to make it compile on Windows (no big fuss, it took me roughly 1024 tries), have a look at the CI workflow here: https://github.com/drkameleon/nim-webview/blob/main/.github/workflows/windows.yml)
