./www/badwolf, Minimalist and privacy-oriented webkit browser

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.3.0nb3, Package name: badwolf-1.3.0nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

badwolf is a minimalist browser that cares about privacy, it is based on
WebKitGTK and thus also accepts WebKitGTK (and dependencies) flags and
environment variables.

Runtime configuration specific to badwolf will probably get added at a later

- No browser-level tracking, multiple ephemeral isolated sessions per new
unrelated tabs, JavaScript off by default.
- Small codebase (~1 500 LoC), reuses existing components when available or
makes it available.
- WebKitGTK native extensions, Interface customizable through CSS.
- Stable User-Interface; The common shortcuts are available (and documented),
no vi-modal edition or single-key shortcuts are used.
- Dialogs are only used when required, javascript popups open in a
background tab.

Log message:
www/badwolf: update to 1.3.0

Packaged in wip by Kevin Bloom, reviewed by myself and tested by Gutteridge
on amd64 and aarch64.

Badwolf 1.3.0 release! — 2023-09-19

Packagers Highlights
- You now need to use ninja/samu instead of make, ./configure is still used
  as before
- Common but non-standard hardening flags like -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 are still
  default but no longer forced to allow alternative compilers.
  Most distros already default to such flags.
  If yours doesn't consider copying such flags if you set custom CFLAGS.

User Highlights

- Support for translated manpages (German, French, Turkish, Vietnamese)
- Add basic (no domain/URL matching yet) UserScripts support
- Middle-clicks and ctrl+click opens links in a new tab

- WebProcess crashes do not clear the URL entry anymore
- Do not set web-context when old_browser is present.
  This fixes crashes with WebKitGTK 2.41+
