== The html kits ==
the two kits are installed, webkit will be used.
For this, you can disallow Geoview in the Internet Maps preferences tab.
=== WebKit ===
More and more projects are integrating webkit ...
==== Proxies ====
WebKit uses the libsoup library. You need the environment variable http_proxy.
=== Gecko ( GtkMozEmbed ) ===
To confirm :
We need to use gnome-control-center to set the proxy.
== Supported longitude/latitude formats ==
When you create/modify a place, the possible formats used for longitude/latitude are :
There are a lot of providers. Some are free.
By default, the provider is OSM ( OpenStreetMap ).
Openlayers is free too and uses by default OSM map.A lot of private or non free maps depends on OpenLayers.
The most interesting is the IGN ( Institut Géographique National Français )[http://www.geoportail.fr/visu2D.do?cg=djoxLjEqYzptZXRyb3BvbGUqY3Y6MS4wKnZ2OjEuMSp4eToyLjM0NTI3NDM5ODQwMTE4ODN8NDguODYwODMyNTU3MTczODgqczoxMCpwdjoxLjAqcDpkZWNvdXZlcnRlKmw6UGhvdG98fHwsU2NhbnwxfDEwMHwsQ2Fzc2luaXwxfHw%3D] which offers an old map of France ( about 1780 ) but this provider needs a key. I'll speak about keys later.
== mapstraction ==
If you have 2000 markers, this time is about 2 times 30 seconds.
For this, I limit one HTML page to 200 markers.
I you have more than this limit, I create the necessary pages to see all your markers.
During testing with a places database for France ( > 35000 markers ), I set the limit to 20 markers which permit to create 1760 pages without problems. So we can say we have an unlimited number of markers. Only the file system space will limit us.
== The provider Key ==
GRAMPS is not a web site. Keys are only for web sites.In GeoView, I use a specific functionality :
We are working on local file instead of url, so we don't need a key.
=== Constraint ===
== The proxies ==
You need a proxy only if you installed one or if you depend on some internet providers.
python-webkitgtk is also called pywebkitgtk
=== ubuntu ===
==== webkit ====
needs libwebkit and python-webkitgtk.
Add to the /etc/apt/sources.list :
==== gecko ====
If you want gtkmozembed on ubuntu,
you must install : python-gnome2-extras
It's stable but
install many gnome packages even if you are on a KDE based distribution.
