[ANN] PythonWebkit bindings for WebkitDFB

Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton

WebkitDFB is an experimental port to allow the webkit web browser
engine to use DirectFB ( It is lightning-quick
to start up (no large widget set to load), yet has the potential to
provide full HTML5 functionality. The PythonWebkit project, brings 300+ DOM objects and
2,000+ fully W3C-compliant python-based DOM functions to webkit,
making python effectively a peer of javascript (,
getElementsByTagName, appendChild, setTimeout, XMLHttpRequest, onclick

These two projects have been brought together in the same source
repository. If startup time and CPU usage is important (as it is on
embedded systems) then please do consider helping with WebkitDFB by
funding its ongoing development and/or helping Denis out. If startup
time and CPU usage and _python_ are important...

in this rather short announcement, it's easy to miss the significance:
yes, webkit the web browser engine, directfb the direct framebuffer
engine, and python the utterly cool and beautiful programming language
have been combined into the same package and sentence. more
