WebView example requires WebEngine?



  • I built the WebView example and it seems to require libQt5WebEngineCore.so.5 which is huge.
    I built for Linux, not a mobile phone. So I guess on Linux an entire WebEngine is included just to provide the WebView.

    So my question then: Is there any point to using a WebView on desktop environments if the entire WebEngine is going to be included?



  • I use WebView in desktop application, including WebEngine, for the facilities it provides.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    The QtWebView module uses QtWebEngine on platforms that don't provide a native web view like macOS, iOS and Android do.
