Local WiFi Loads files from the Front SD slot


Wii Xplore aims to bring a rich yet simplified web browsing experience where the user does not have to incorrectly spell Google. Currently, it can download any file from any URL and save it to the SD card, useless right now but saving will probably save some memory space for JavaScript and images. The HTTP Lib used has been "borrowed" from WiiEarth but there will be several radical changes occurring in the lib to suit my uses for it.

=Features

Will automatically download the contents and headers of http://google.com/ and save them to the SD.

Upcoming features

  • User can choose a URL
  • Gnash implementation (GNU Flash)
  • SpiderMonkey implementation
  • Something to parse HTML
  • Custom views system
    • Certain pages which do not show up right will have their own rules/template so normal browsing can be resumed
  • Auto-increase fonts (after rendering)
  • GUI!!!! (Obvious, most likely coming next.)
  • SSL (WTF!!!)

Future Plans

This project is part of the FMW (Free Mii Wii) Project which is also being run by OnSiNcH Dev. This project will hopefully lead to XBox like features.

Why am I bothering to do this?
