Over the past few years, we have seen increased demand for the development of applications that leverage both web and native technologies to modernize native applications, iterate faster with web technologies, and more easily develop cross-platform.
To learn more about WebViews, how they work, and more about options like Evergreen (WebView content is rendered by the Microsoft Edge browser instance on the user’s computer) vs. Bring Your Own (WebView content is rendered by a separate instance of the Microsoft Edge browser downloaded with the application) check out our developer documentation.
WebView2 API Sample
Recently, we built and launched a sample application (we call it WebView2 API Sample) using the WebView2 APIs to create an interactive application that demonstrates WebView2’s functionalities. The WebView2 API Sample is intended to be the most comprehensive guide available and will be updated regularly as we add more features to our SDK.
You can build and play around with the WebView2 API Sample by downloading or cloning it from our WebView2 Samples repository. To learn more about the sample’s source code and functionality, read our WebView2 API Sample guide. As you develop your own applications, we recommend referencing the source code for suggested API patterns for WebView2 workflows.
Build your own WebView2 application
Tell us what you plan to build with WebView2 and please reach out with any thoughts or feedback through our feedback repo.
