I was about to mention this :-)

For the opposite direction (Main process -> JavaScript), you can use
webkit_web_view_run_javascript() and call code in the JS world:


As a complement to the above, if you need to add extra glue code to the JS
world that is not included in your loaded web content, you can use
webkit_user_content_manager_add_script() to inject JS code from the main


Hope this helps!
