Posted By: pegasos-sigi2. on 2017/8/21 7:09:19
Epub.mcc 0.1

A very little E-Book MUI Class with demo prog.
Caution: Alpha !

Features:

+ Coverpicture
+ Data from the author (title, comment, subject,...)
+ Table of contense
+ HTML 4.01

Not yet a feature:

- CSS
- SVG
- HTML 5

Comment: The Class renders syncron. That slows down the whole prog at this moment.
Later it use a separate render task.

Well, it does start and it is possible to load the included files. It is a very early version for sure (window title says "InstantZip", etc). In general, having an .mcc that is able to view HTML content (epub related or otherwise) would be great but I think it would be tricky to write something like this from scratch.

Have you looked into options like litehtml? As far as I know, you have used Cairo before. There is even a simple web browser combining litehtml and Cairo to render web pages (Windows only, however).

    I have no libc Acess in the .mcc. So no std - C Code work.
