Questions about CEF (using CEF as GUI)

Postby Optimus » Tue Feb 26, 2019 1:09 pm


Main questions:
1. Is CEF as HTML UI for C++, or it is only as browser?
2. How is achieved communication between C++ and CEF?
3. How fast is conversion between c++ and JavaScript and back?
My idea is use CEF GUI for some audio program to display realtime meter levels (volume), Spectrum Analyzer, Wave display. I have plan for image manipulation too, for example render image in C++ and siplay it in CEF. Maybe user can make changes to image.
4. can be CEF UI connetced with c++ other way as JavaScript?
5. does have CEF own windows and render system, or I must use windowinng and rendering system from outside? For example GLFW? If CEF have own system, it is multi-windowed?

Minor Questions:
5. When I create some GUI with HTML, CSS and JS, it will be looking same on all Windows versions, MAC Os version and Linux versions, or I need do some special correction for each OS and OS version?
6. Can be HTML and JS compiled in to final release mode? For example html and javascripts will be inside exe, without acces to user.
