Hi list,

as promised during the regional Omnis Developer Conference in Frankfurt, we open sourced an Omnis Studio external and an Omnis Studio library which demonstrates the usage of Awesomium to display and interact with HTML 5 Content. 

Awesomium wraps Chromium with an easy to use C++ API.


+ Running HTML5 inside Omnis Studio (WebGL, HTML5Video, Downloading, etc)

+ Calling JavaScript methods from Omnis Studio with return values

+ Executing Omnis Studio code through events triggered from JavaScript

+ Example on how to wrap an HTML5 component and how to use it as a component inside Omnis Studio Windows 

+ With this external it should be possible to integrate the JSClient into an Omnis Studio 4.X application

The external is published on github and is Licensed under LGPL v2.1

Best Regards
