luakit – fast, small, webkit based micro-browser extensible by lua

I’ve added ebuilds in Gentoo’s portage for a new webkit browser called luakit.

[I] www-client/luakit
Available versions: (~)2010.08.07 (~)2010.08.13 **9999
Homepage: http://www.luakit.org
Description: a webkit-gtk based, micro-browser framework in Lua

It is a webkit based, low footprint browser written in C and Lua, modeled after awesome wm, my favorite window manager ;)

Vim-like bindings, low memory usage, lua configuration file (if you use awesome you will feel at home) and rapid development are some of luakit‘s key points.

To try it out:

emerge -av luakit

(~testing only, so you have to keyword it if running stable)

For more information, visit the luakit website, or join #luakit (OFTC IRC network) :)

  2. Looks pretty nifty and would fit into Awesome WM perfectly. I hope it’s easier to use then Uzbl :]
