CefSharp lets you embed Chromium in .NET apps. It is a lightweight .NET wrapper around the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) by Marshall A. Greenblatt. About 30% of the bindings are written in C++/CLI with the majority of code here is C#. It can be used from C# or VB, or any other CLR language. CefSharp provides both WPF and WinForms web browser control implementations.

CefSharp is BSD licensed, so it can be used in both proprietary and free/open source applications. For the full details, see the LICENSE file.

If you like and use CefSharp please consider signing up for a small monthly donation, even $25 can help tremendously. See Financial Support for more details.

Releases

Stable binaries are released on NuGet, and contain everything you need to embed Chromium in your .Net/CLR application. For usage see the Quick Start guide or FAQ #8.

Branches & Forks

This is the

official

CefSharp fork, as maintained by the CefSharp community. You can also view the entire network of public forks/branches.

Development is done in the

master

branch. New features are preferably added in feature branches, if the changes are more than trivial. New

PR's

should be targeted against

master

.

When a new release is imminent a

release

branch is created. We try to avoid making public facing

API

changes in

release

branches (Adding new features is fine, just not breaking changes).

CI Builds

master

Financial Support

To continue developing/supporting the project I (@amaitland) am asking for financial contributions. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated!

Recurring contributions can be made through GitHub Sponsors it only takes a GitHub account and a credit card. Currently GitHub is doubling(!) all pledges so is very much the preferred method of donation. I can also take contributions through PayPal.

Now that I (@amaitland) am a stay at home dad your contributions are the only reason I'm allowed to continue working on the project. Without continued funding the time I currently spend on the project will have to be put into finding other paid work.
