How to get Fennec full screen from the android project's source code?

Posted

Hi,


First and foremost, I'm sure this was not the proper category to post that question but I couldn't really figure out a better one. Hopefully you'll forward it to a better place.

We would like to take the advantages of Fennec with out HTML5 framework by wrapping it into a somewhat WebView like you can do on Android. The native implementation of the webview on Android turns out to be very disappointing so far whereas Fennec runs seamlessly.

Could you recommend us any tips to do that properly from the Fennec's Android app project?

Basically we just want to be able to call sort of a new FennecWebView() class instance in our code (instead of the formerly new WebView() ) that will run full-screen and won't call any further things such as, bookmark manager, setting. We just want to scale this down to the very strict minimum in order to run our Canvas framework in a native app thanks to the Fennec's engine.

Thank you very much!

BR,

Armand

I've seen some interest in this from others. It was suggested that they build a web app manifest.
