Welcome to Go Web API

This project is about accessing javascript from Go web assembly. It consists of a binding generator and generated binding for e.g. DOM, HTML and WebGL. The source files to binding program is WebIDL files.

Example code

A simple example can look like this:

package main

import (
    "fmt"

    "github.com/gowebapi/webapi"
    "github.com/gowebapi/webapi/dom/domcore"
    "github.com/gowebapi/webapi/html"
)

func main() {
    // get the element
    element := webapi.GetWindow().Document().GetElementById("myButton")
    // cast it into correct class
    button := html.HTMLButtonElementFromJS(element)
    // change text
    button.SetInnerText("Press me!")

    // register a callback that will display a counter
    count := 1
    callback := domcore.EventHandlerToJS(func(event *domcore.Event) interface{} {
        button.SetInnerText(fmt.Sprint("Count: ", count))
        count++
        return nil
    })
    button.SetOnclick(callback)

    // prevent to program to terminate
    c := make(chan struct{}, 0)
    <-c
}

Status/TODO

Currently the binder can process the DOM and HTML specification and create a compilable output. It's not 100% feature complete as the specifications depends on other that is currently not processed.

See this page about current supported browser standard.

There is also limitation in the Go language, see overview page on how static methods etc is handeled.

API Documentation can be found here: GoDoc

The project is currently targeting Go 1.12.
