Generic WebView solution
I want to integrate a web viewer into my Qt5 desktop widget appl.
As I want it multiplatform(Lin,Win) I use mingw as a compiler.
As for now WebViewEngine is only available with MSVC compiler. (which I would like to avoid)
What approach would anyone propose to solve the issue?
For now a Windows solution would suffice.
@gkavrecic Why do you want to avoid MSVC? Multiplatform doesn't mean same compiler, it means same source code compiled for different platforms using what ever compilers are available for these platforms.
@jsulm I understand the concept of compiler and sources. There is no specific technical reason, just trying to keep the clutter on my machine(s) as low as possible. Don't like to accumulate stuff that I don't really need.
BTW: Based on same statement why then WebView is not available for mingw? (it is a compiler as any other)
Because on OSs that don't provide a native web view, QtWebEngine is used as backend.
And as you already know, the chromium project currently doesn't support building with MinGW.
Is there any alternative to WebEngine?
An external library maybe?
I think finding something else
will be more hassle than installing
visual studio build tools c++
Its a round 2-4 GB without the
IDE and not as big fat installation it used to be.
I totally agree with older version it was such a mess to have installed but
version 2015+ it got way better.
