An example on how to use C API in Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF)
A simple example on how to use the C API in Chromium Embedded Framework created by Czarek Tomczak. Example creates a window, embeds a browser inside that window and loads Google website. Shows how to implement dummy reference counting and CEF structures with callbacks to implement CEF handlers like
cef_life_span_handler_t. To understand and implement real reference counting see the UsingTheCAPI wiki page in upstream CEF project.

If you download a CEF version newer than
3.3202.1692then apart from copying binaries to cefcapi/Release/ directory you will also have to update the include/ directory with CEF header files.
In the include/ directory you can find two files: "cefversionwin.h" and "cefversionlinux.h" - these header files were copied from CEF binary distributions for appropriate platforms and their original file names were "cef_version.h".
