An iOS browser built on top of UIWebView - screenshot

This projects implements tabs, bookmarks, address bar, search bar, loading indicators, and much more for UIWebView. Currently it only supports iOS 7.0 and greater with ARC-only. See branches for older versions.

Installation

  • Copy "Browser" and "Browser Resources" folder into your xcode project.

  • This project is cocoapods compatible if you prefer installing it via cocoapods.

Dependencies

  • CoreData.framework
  • SystemConfiguration.framework
  • libxml2.2.dylib

To include these dependencies you need to add them to your linked libraries. To do this click on project name in Project Navigator then click on your project target. Then under the "Build Phases" section you will see a "Link Binary With Libraries" item, expand it and click the "+" button.

Since libxml is not a framework but rather a dylib you will also have to add it to the head search paths. To do this go to "Build Settings" section of xcode.Set the "Head Search Paths":

$(SDKROOT)/usr/include/libxml2

Integration

The recommended way to integrate the browser code is to make your view controller a subclass of the browser controller. Which should look something like this:

@interface ViewController : BrowserViewController

AppDelegate

Your app delegate needs to inherit from the browser delegate as so: #import "BrowserDelegate.h"

@interface AppDelegate : BrowserDelegate 

The browser code does reference the app delegate, so you must have an AppDelegate Task. In the app delegate you should place this code in your

didFinishLaunchingWithOptions
:
self.viewController = [[BrowserViewController alloc] init];

Misc

There is a

customButton
UIBarButtonitem which you can customize programmatically in your view controller. This button appears in the bottom toolbar on the right. You can also overwrite the click handler method
-(IBAction) customButtonClick:(id)sender
.

There are now 2 custom buttons.
