    Default Canonic | Open Source QML Web Browser

    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to share a project that I've been working on for almost a year called Canonic.

    It is a web browser for browsing QML instead of HTML content.

    The browser is currently distributed as a WebAssembly application so you can use it within your existing web browser (browser inception) at the following url: https://www.canonic.com/
    Or you can build the browser from source and run natively.

    Something approximating documentation is now available at: https://docs.page/canonic/canonic
    Excuse my dyslexia for the many typos that no doubt exist.

    Hopefully Canonic gets .mdx support in the not so to distant future so the docs can be browsed in the browser itself.

    A proper html landing page is next in line however so that mobile and mac users have something pretty to look at.

    Thanks. Don't let a reading or speaking problem stop you - Governor Newsom of California has severe dyslexia and must memorize his speeches. President Biden had a severe stutter when he was younger. Didn't stop them, glad to see it isn't hurting you with your Canonic project.

    Thanks d_stranz! I'm not so worried about it hurting me though, more other people

    I've updated the website (https://www.canonic.com) to make it into a basic html landing page and moved the actual app to https://app.canonic.com.
    A user over on r/browsers suggested I turn it into a progressive web app (PWA) so that it can actually be installed which may be the next move. It would save me a lot of work dealing with sandboxing, at least for now.

    Also on the todo list is:
    - make a qml crawling bot
    - put together a qml search engine
    - add local file browsing support
