i can remember that there were some ideas for creating a web-browser plugin, such that you can click a link, and see the cs scene/app in a
window or in the browser.
Does somebody know what the status is? is there already something that can be tried?

Hi, as far as i know there are two projects aiming at this:


mozcrystal: (in csexternal repo)

about the first one, i'm not sure whats current status.

The second was working correctly for linux until some months ago when it broke due to changes in cs, so it needs reviewing. Mozcrystal currently implements celstart, so it is capable of loading any celstart app. Also work for making it work on windows is underway (most stuff should be in place, but must make build system work on mingw or visualc++). Work on the plugin is now halted due to personal overload, but its open if anyone wants to hack at it.

I think it needs the following work:
- make it work again on current cs: 10 hours
- make it work on windows: 40 hours
- debug (look for crashers, make it work on several tabs, fix up reloading): 40 hours
- refining (devise system for downloading cs plugins, ensure all events work correctly, implement some initial javascript bindings to control de plugin...): unknown
- make it work on ie: unknown

if anyone interested you can contact me directly about mozcrystal on irc or email.

Hi Pablo,

thanks for the info!
I will check both projects to see where to continue, mozcrystal looks most promising.
And indeed, personal overload is often the critical factor for opensource development...
I wiil contact you as soon i have "some feeling" for your code, for me the primary platform will be windows.
