The Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) is an open source framework for embedding a web browser engine based on the Chromium core. It is a convenient way to add web browser control and Implement an HTML5 -based GUI layout in a desktop app or web browser to Provide capabilities to a software app or game , and the infrastructure Provides developers need to Quickly add HTML rendering and JavaScript to a C ++ project. It also comes with bindings for C , C ++ , Delphi , Go , Java , .NET / Mono ,

Minecraft Chromium Embedded Framework

A mod is called Minecraft Chromium Embedded Framework. It uses Chromium Embedded Framework libs, the framework was added to the mod. It allows the user to surf the web in minecraft.

Overview

There are two versions of Chromium Embedded Framework: CEF 1 and CEF 3. [2] Development of CEF 2 was abandoned after the appearance of the Chromium Content API. [3]

CEF 1 is a single-process implementation based on the Chromium WebKit API. It is no longer actively developed or supported. [4]

CEF 3 is a multi-process implementation based on Chromium Content API and has similar performance to Google Chrome. [5] It uses asynchronous messaging to communicate between the process and process engine processes ( Blink + V8 JavaScript engine). It supports PPAPI plugins and extensions, both internal (PDF viewer) or externally loadable. The single-process run mode is not supported, but still present; Is currently used for debugging purposes only. [6]

CEF with a sample application called CefClient that is written in C ++ using WinAPI , Cocoa , or GTK (depending on the platform) and contains demos of various features. [7] [8] Newer versions include a sample application called CefSimple that, along with an accompanying tutorial, show how to create a simple application using CEF 3. [9]

Documentation can be found in the header files located in the “include” directory [10] [11] and on wiki pages. [12]

Adobe Web Engine Team Maintains Stable and development branches builds for Linux (in 32- and 64-bit forms), Mac and Windows.
