Browser plugin support


#1

Hey,

I seem to remember that at one point it was possible to develop browser plugins with JUCE, however I cannot find any documentation on this.

Is browser plugin development no longer supported?

Thanks,

Liam

Exactly, it has been dropped around the beginning of the year I think

(unfortunately, searching for "browser plugin" doesn't help me in finding the thread where this was discussed, because it is fairly recent but the search function doesn't allow for results sorted according to their date. Web team? can we get this please?)

Yeah, we kept them hanging around until just a few weeks ago, but finally ditched it.

All modern browsers dropped support for NPAPI a long time ago, so there's really not much of a case for writing one of these. If you really need to target old legacy browsers then you could still use an older version of JUCE where we supported this.
