There's no JIT support in the JavaScriptCore version used by Wayfarer. Also if you think that the latest WebKit is trivial to "compile", then you didn't pay attention to this thread or any of the other discussion about it :P
Anyway props to walkero for actually doing something, instead of endlessly talking about why it can't be done, why something else should be done instead, etc. You know the things people tend to do when the topic of browsers comes up.

This is just like television, only you can see much further.

Well cross compiled version exists for MorphOS, AROS, AmigaOS3.x and AmigaOS4.x, yes, I know its not easy to compile, I experienced that myself, but it has been compiled several times. Sure, you need keep your clib up to date, to compile the latest. should be obvious.

there is no JIT support any, OWB, Odyssey or Wayfarer browser.
there is no JIT support in NetSurf and none in IBrowse, none in AWeb, and so on.

And this is why, it should be focused on.

What GUI we use on top is less important, sure we want it to be mostly GPU accelerated, by using latest 2D api’s and avoid custom routines / and wrappers.

There is not even a browser running, but you'd already focus on creating a big endian PPC JIT for JavaScriptCore? Yikes.

I see you come here to argue, you don’t need compile web browser to do unit tests, and fusional tests. For goodness’s sake JS comes with a test kit.

For large projects you need to divide and conquer, you can’t take
on everything at once. you get stuck find excuses to work on something else.

I came to commend walkero and the others on the progress they made. There's nothing to argue about since you have already changed the subject.

I know it's still early on in the project, but it would be great if we could use webkit as an embeddable webview that's usable via something like this webview project. The Windows version of ZitaFTP Server uses a webview for the UI, which is currently not possible on AmigaOS.

Probably way too old by now, but in OWB the WebView and the OS specific GUIs (AmigaOS 4.x ReAction, AROS AFAIK intuition.library/GadTools, MorphOS MUI, Linux GtK, AmigaOS 3.x SDL + HTML (no real GUI), etc.) were separate parts.

Sorry for my late answer, but the last 3 days I was involved at the Amiga Ireland event.

Our goal is to tie as less as possible the WebKit engine we port with any application, no matter if that is a browser, an email client or anything else. I believe that this is doable. Now, if the way to do it is by creating a simple class like a webview, then that's what we are going to do. In any way our first goal is to create a simple window showing a single page, and a webview should be necessary I guess.

I am also thinking that we could have stand-alone apps with specific applications, i.e. a vector graphics app or a UML app, that could run like a native application. Something like what electron is for the other systems. That would be cool, right?

Last week, when I was working on the project, I was compiling the full WebKitty project. I believe that we all gonna have a better idea of what we are capable to have at the end of it.

Isn't there a Javascript JIT for Odyssey Morphos from Mark Olsen ?
