We are making a web browser!
PREVIOUSLY >>61682359

In the face of recent changes in Firefox and Chrome some anons were asking for a /g/'s perfect web browser, we collected the most wanted here and plan on continuing with the creation.

To contribute follow the WORK PLAN, join the IRC to ask developers for a repo, and get to programming!

Github: https://github.com/5yph3r/Netrunner

>TODO:
- Host project at savannah.nongnu.org
- Set bug tracker and mailing list in Savannah.

>WORK PLAN
1. Browse links2 source code (you can use Ctags for tagging functions and files).
2. Expose API and give access to everything (scripting through executables is planned).
3. Give total control over the DOM, put options in files inside a hierarchical folder structure referencing sites and subsites.
4. Implement a link grabber for every link and media type to be parsed by scripts and independent applications.
5. Create an uncomplicated switch to general security profiles located in saved files.
6. Implement ncurses simple tree style graphics for bookmarks, tabs, advanced security policies by site, etc.
7. Work in the framebuffer graphics rendering.
8. Open API to javascript support (version 2.1pre28 of links2 had javascript enabled).
9. Cache, logs, cookies, and other data storage options.
10. Ports routing proxy management.
11. Vim/Emacs modes, dwb hints and quickmarks.
12. Optionally add parser for HTML, DJVU, PDF, epub, etc.?

"The idea is not to reinvent the wheel each time you depend on some new thing on the web but to reuse applications already in your computer.
Like for example they take from the unix philosophy to send media like videos to a video player you already have installed.
I particularly like this idea."

>>61835323
They aren't using regex for parsing or lexing, only for tokenization. Regular expressions can only be used to describe regular language. HTML and BBcode are not regular. Infact any language that similar to a langague where there are n opening brackets followed by n closing brackets isn't regular.

Plus even though modern regex with backtracking kinda gets around the fact that regex can't describe recursion, it isn't robust, very resource intensive and completely unnecessary. Regex should only be used for pattern matching EVER, no exceptions. Tokenize with regex, parse with a proper parser

Hey guys, look at "surf", the suckless web browser. Is very lightweight and minimal. They have great ideas like using scripts to include stuff like bookmarks and autologin http://surf.suckless.org/files/

I am probably using this as a secondary browser but I think NetRunner can take a couple things from it. Is very similar to our goals.

8/6-10 Progress report

If you haven't been following along on our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCes2uiC-4xSBwqnldCFbh4Q or Twitter @Team_NetRunner here's the latest:

- Input box can take input when selected
- Input box scrolls text when it hits width
- Iframe document widget created and logic for page scrolling is moved inside (tabbed browser is likely by the end of the month)
- moved anime girl from source to external file (pnm unsupported P8 RGBA)
- refactoring opengl bits out of the components, so we can work towards a framebuffer solution
- We now have a working address bar (forward/back buttons likely next week)

The iframe refactor has broken resizing and made the scroll choppy, so I'm not releasing any new binaries until we're back on par with the existing releases. You're always welcome to compile your own.

Netrunner, on the other hand, is going to be pure.
>>
>>61851926
Why is the programming language something is written in even such a big factor when using it?
>>
>>61852048
Because it's not pure.

Python is slow and interpreted. In practice it doesn't matter that much, but the kind of people to want to use qtbrowser or netrunner are also the kind of people to be running 20 year old thinkpads, so it can make a difference in some cases.

The other problem is Qt, which is often criticised for being bloated and inefficient.

But does it happen naturally when you try to develop a good browser?
>>
>>61852770
That doesn't make them too slow to implement your solution either, retard.

There are many good and big applications and other software written in Python.
Flashcards program Anki, original BitTorrent client, ebook library manager Calibre, configuration management engine Ansible, Deluge BitTorrent client, Bazaar and Mercurial revision control systems, OpenStack IaaS platform, Pip, Portage and YUM software managers, Salt automation engine.
YouTube relies extensively on Python, Dropbox is using Python, NASA is implementing their CAD/CAE/PDM repository and model management, integration, and transformation system in Python.
There are also games extensively using Python, and these include Civilization IV, Battlefield 2, Eve Online, and World of Tanks.
Python has been used for real-time solutions where the fastest required response time is 1 millisecond, and the bottleneck here was Linux, because any higher precision would require real time OS. Python is being used in Air Traffic Control.

But yeah, better spout memes and pretend to argue about things you have no slightest clue about.

I really like this idea and the project overall. I have a question though, is there anything wrong with using another browser like Epiphany or Midori as a base? Or at least taking code from them? That would get a lot of the grunt work out of the way so you could focus on the cool stuff.

It has more similarity to a text manpage viewer than to a browser. Even the windows 3.0 help viewer could render more than this shit

This project has piqued my interest in browser technology and I want to create my own browser from scratch.

How hard do you guys think it would be to make a complete browser from scratch (parsing, layout, styling, rendering) minus javascript?

Is this a reasonable project to take on or should I just read Tali Garsiel's browser essay and be done with it?
>>
>>61875114
That's essentially what this project is doing.
>>
>>61875123
I thought netrunner was attempting to be a text-only browser?
>>
>>61875145
Nope, it's attempting a full browser from scratch with low-dependencies. Has OpenGL bindings now, adding framebuffer and TUI later.
>>
>>61875172
I see, that's really cool.

I'll go at it on my own for now, might try contributing to netrunner later on.
>>
>>61875205
Awesome, having some fresh ideas/code to look at would be helpful too.

a text only mode would be good, if just for ricer screenshot purposes

Is a specific version of LibGLEW needed?
>>
>>61877712
only if you used the prepackage binaries (they need 2.0). If you compile it, you should be able to use any version.

Have you been simply making a wish list and shitposting for two months?

Why should I use it instead of all the others?

Don't, its shit. Wait until some anon builds a better one and releases it.

Just use ungoogled-chromium until then

>>61880293
You can review all our source code quicker than any other browser. Plus we're slower moving so you can keep up the review easily. We're focused on privacy, anonymity and security. Also plan to be highly moldable (so if you don't like something you can change it)

The GLEW backend is super neat. If this ever gets good enough to shitpost on 4chan I'll try porting it to Haiku.

Will there be lua scripting support?
>>
>>61880897
Why dont you build for windows with gcc? VS is full of telemetry and shit.
>>
>>61881020
If we do this right, you'll be any to script in any language. Though I have been tempt to just embed lua and do some of the logic in scripting instead of c.

>>61881058
1. I don't have mingw32 installed, 2. I feel that MSVC probably makes better windows binaries. 3. Having a 3rd compiler with it's own warnings and engine helps improve code quality

Anki and Calibre are fucking garbage. I would love for somebody to write a decent Anki replacement. I might do it myself. It's such an enormous piece of shit.

How many devs other than odiltime are working on this?

2 currently (active contributors) and we may have picked up 2 more tonight from HackerNews

I might do it for my masters project.
I'd have to think about how to make it different though because my uni doesn't let me just rehash stuff.

When will it be done? I'll be on qutebrowser or surf by the time firefox 57 comes out
>>
Spend the last 4 hours trying out browsers.

Everything is shit, I really hope you guys succeed.
>>
>>61883254
it'll never be "done". it's more of a research project. MAYBE it'll be usable enough to browse 4chan and stackoverflow in a year or two
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15001233
but don't expect it to replace your main browser.
also you'll be back to firefox in half a year when the no extensions fud meme is over

Too many dependencies, not easily changed (all subsystems are interdependent).
