WRP for QT-Webkit

(note this is a guest post from Tenox)

Due to a popular demand, a previously mentioned Web Rendering Proxy has been ported to QT-Webkit, which allows it to run on Linux, BSD and other operating systems.

QT doesn’t support writing GIF images so JPEG is being used instead. You may want to adjust the option for image quality versus size.

The installation of required components is straight forward, on Ubuntu:

apt-get  install  python-qt4  libqt4-webkit

Generaly you if you can get qt-webkit2png to run, WRP will also work. Note for Windows users, you will need a X11 display server like the one that comes with Cygwin.

The script is available here.

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

    Got this running on my Debian box. Really awesome to see it go on my own machines! It gets stuck serving certain pages, and I have to restart it, but overall an amazing effort.

    Good to hear it works for you! Can you list some sample website that gets it stuck? I’ll see what I can do 😉
