[webkit-dev] Proposal: Remove Pointer Lock API

Hi Andreas,


As Gyuyoung Kim says, in GTK we are trying to have it enabled quite soon.


The patch at [1] is already working: I used the Pointer Lock example at
ThreeJS[2] to try it, and although there are still some open issues, they
shouldn't be a problem. A more complex example, the Quake 3 map explorer at
[3], doesn't work, but it is related to a different JSC issue.


This feature is part of the WebKit2GTK+ Roadmap [4], so there is an existing
plan to ship it.


Best regards,

Hi Andreas,


EFL port has not supported it yet. So, I think we don't mind to remove it.
However, it looks GTK port wants to enable it on Bug 99036.

Hi WebKittens,

I'd like to propose removing the Pointer Lock API code from WebKit. The code
hasn't been touched for 12 months, and AFAICT no ports are building with

Is anyone currently building (and shipping / planning to ship) this API?

Other thoughts?
