It's like OmniWeb met NetSurf

What's this?


It's NetSurf, on GNUstep! It works pretty well.

How do I build this?

  unset HOST
  cd ~/dev-netsurf/workspace
  mv netsurf netsurf.old
  git clone [THE URL OF THIS VERY REPO] netsurf
  cd netsurf
  gmake TARGET=gnustep

It's a lot of steps, to make it easier, put these into a separate file (e.g. deploy-websurf) and run it like so: . ./deploy-websurf

  • Sven Weidauer (Cocoa port)
  • Anthony Cohn-Richardby (GNUstep port)
