The WebKit Open Source Project

Running WebKit

  1. Execute the run-safari script to run Safari with the WebKit version you built.

    Use the --debug option for a debug build:

    run-safari --debug

Mac OS X

The run-safari script sets the DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH environment variable to point to your build products, and then launches /Applications/Safari.app. DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH tells the system loader to prefer your build products over the frameworks installed in /System/Library/Frameworks.

Windows

The run-safari script launches the Safari executable with the /frameworkPath command line switch set to point to your build products. The /debug command line switch will be set if you pass --debug to run-safari.
