Turn WAI applications into standalone GUIs using Qt WebKit.


You'll need the appropriate system libraries, on Ubuntu:

apt-get install libqtwebkit-dev

On Lucid, this required adding a PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports


Install the Qt SDK from http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/

Your application's Cabal file will require certain options for Windows, shown below. In particular, we need to link with g++, so make sure it's in your PATH. The option -optl-mwindows ensures that the application does not open a terminal.

if os(windows)
  ghc-options: -Wall -threaded -pgml g++ -optl-static -optl-mwindows
  ghc-options: -Wall

Run cabal-install with the Qt include and lib directories.

export QT_PATH=c:/QtSDK/Desktop/Qt/4.7.3/mingw

cabal-dev install \
  --extra-include-dirs=$QT_PATH/include \
  --extra-include-dirs=$QT_PATH/include/QtCore \
  --extra-include-dirs=$QT_PATH/include/QtNetwork \
  --extra-include-dirs=$QT_PATH/include/QtGui \
  --extra-include-dirs=$QT_PATH/include/QtWebKit \

You'll need to include these DLLs with your application:
