Ubuntu.Web WebContext

A default context implementation for use with WebView.

Import Statement: import Ubuntu.Web 0.2


Detailed Description

This default WebContext implementation has the default user agent string used by the Ubuntu browser as well as the UA override mechanism that allows sending an overridden user agent for given domains/websites, based on the form factor.

It has its data path (for cache and cookie database) set to the standard writable data location for the current application, which is based on the application name (see Qt.application.name), for example ~/.local/share/myApp/.

Note that the WebView component already uses this default context, so there is no need to explicitly instantiate a WebContext unless you want to override some of its default properties.

See also SharedWebContext.
