Llama Browser 0.2 by frogfrosch23 Llama Browser 0.2 by frogfrosch23
Simple webkit-based browser written in Python to make the act of giving llamas a little easier. At the same time my approach to learn programming.
Currently it is running only on GNU/Linux, as it requires gtk, python and webkit. Although I guess I'll switch to tkinter sooner or later.

WARNING: This program is VERY alpha. Anything could go wrong.
No warranty, of course.

Before use, make the file executable, either by setting the checkbox in the properties menu or by executing chmod +x llbrw.py in your terminal.

To hop to a deviant's llama-page, just type his username in the addressbar and hit Enter or click "To the Llama!".

Every critique and piece of advice is very welcome. After "Hello world" this is only my second attempt on Python. Mainly based on what can be learned on Youtube.

Watch a video showing it's behaviour on vimeo or download it from my sta.sh.

You can get gtk, webkit, and python running on other platforms quite easily, can't you? (just sayin'- I'm a Linux user, of course, but it seems that someone could port it quite easily)

Webkit and Python should not be a problem, but I am not sure about GTK. Google-Fu brought up GTK for Windows, but I'll have to find out how to bundle all this.
Did not look into this part yet, so I don't know how hard or easy this may be. If it can be done, though - on less problem. Otherwise I'd have to find a helpful Windows user to port it.

Yeah- well, of course GIMP and Inkscape on Windows use GTK. If you don't use anything else in your app (like cairo), it should be pretty easy to do. Of course, it's distributing it on Windows that makes it a pain.

You could always use wxWidgets (which will support GTK 3 soon), and that'll run on the big three without modification.

Yeah, I guess, wxWidgets would be the easiest way. At least from what a quick research brought up. Thank you for pointing me there, I will look into it.
