What is Canonic?Canonic is a free, open-source (GPL3), browser based on and for Qt's QML UI language as well as various other file formats. It is maintained by haikü and was originally built as a way to make deploying QML applications easier.
What is Canonic for?I built Canonic for a few reasons:
- I think QML > HTML and wanted to create a browser to test QML as a web standard.
- I work in the VFX / cloud computing space and wanted an internal tool for viewing 3D related file formats.
- I am of the opinion that file systems were a mistake and I want to create a browser to experiment with other ways of hosting information on the web - more on this soon :)
