[webkit-help] 答复: How to enable OpenVG in Webkit

Hello Pawan,


Thanks for your reply.


I’ve ever found this web page through Google search, and it indicates that OpenVG in Webkit source

is not available. So it seems that we can’t enable OpenVG directly by implementing OpenVG as a special 

paint engine like the way in Webkit source.


I am just wondering whether it is possible to enable OpenVG indirectly by treating OpenVG as a graphic

backend of already supported paint engine in Webkit, such as treating OpenVG as a backend of Cairo 

which is paint engine of GTK port or as a backend of  QPainter which is paint engine of Qt port.


Do you have some experience about this topic? And can give me some advice about the feasibility of this approach?

Thanks a lot.


Best regards.

Hello Chen,


OpenVG in Webkit source is incomplete.

Its not compilable too.

I had tried this in December 2011 but in vain.

Hello everyone,

I'd like to ask some questions about how to enable OpenVG in Webkit, and my working version of Webkit is "WebKit-r87722".

I have noticed that there are some source codes in "WebCore/platform/graphics/openvg" directory,so it seems that Webkit has some internal support for OpenVG, but right now I don't know how to utilize these code.

So my question is:
1) Does the above mentioned code really work ? Is it possible to enable OpenVG in Webkit?
2) Does anybody know how to enable OpenVG in Webkit? Could you provide some instructions about how to compile the source or provide a build script.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
