This is a proper announcement about a project I have been working on for the past week or so.
Had a thread going but was probably in the wrong section (https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 49#p360549).
The goal of this project is to package FreeCAD to be used via a web browser. It uses docker to package every thing and make deployment easy.
I will be updating this post with the latest build instructions. If any one wants to collaborate let me know here.
Source is up on github https://github.com/mmiscool/FC-Docker
Bugs should be reported via github. Discussion of features or improvements can happen here.
**** Help Wanted ****
- Tool bar configurations and icon file broken links fixing. This can all be done via the GUI and the settings file can be exported.
- Figuring out how to hijack the default built in file browser dialog and override with a custom code. See thread https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=42505
- Reloading the user.cfg file post launch. See thread https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=42349
- Testing Testing Testing. Please play and give feed back
To run it your self just run the following commands on your Ubuntu or Debian that has docker installed.
These same commands will work on the free docker playground available at https://labs.play-with-docker.com/
The docker playground will let you spin up a docker server in the cloud and run it for 4 hours at a time.
