-# QtWebEngine - Combining the power of Chromium and Qt #
-
-
-To be able to build QtWebEngine you need Qt 5.2 or newer.
-
-## I. Getting the Code ##
-
-### 1) Clone the QtWebEngine repository ###
-
- git clone git://gitorious.org/qt/qtwebengine.git
-
-### 2) Initialize the repository ###
-
-This will fetch a snapshot of chromium sources we rely on.
-
- ./init-repository.py
-
-## II. Build Instructions##
-
-### 1) Generate the ninja build files by running qmake. ###
-
-It's a also possible to use qmake -r to forcefully re-gyp (without relying on make to determine if it's necessary).
-
- qmake
-
-### 2) build with make ###
-
-Everything should be set up properly now.
-
- make
-
-### 3) [optional] make install ###
-
-This step is required for installing l10n files and other resources (such as the resources for the remote inspector).
-
- make install
-
-## Additional tips and tricks ##
-
-### Complete Upstream Chromium Checkout ###
-If you want to have a complete chromium checkout with the complete history instead of the snapshot,
-then you can run the init-repository script with the -u option.
-
-This will then create a complete ninja and chromium checkout in the subdirectory src/3rdparty\_upstream.
-qmake will automatically pickup the location and make use of the sources in the subsequent steps II.1) and II.2).
-
- ./init-repository.py -u
-
-### Use external Chromium sources ###
-If you want to use external chromium sources instead of the submodule provided in the QtWebEngine repository,
-you can export the CHROMIUM\_SRC\_DIR variable point it to your source directory.
-
-### Debug vs. Release builds ###
-
-By default, the configuration used for building Qt is followed.
-It is possible to override this by passing CONFIG+=release or debug at qmake time. e.g:
-
- qmake -r CONFIG+=debug
