Second week of coding phase, GSoC'18

The week was totally involved in developing QML APIs similar to WebExtension APIs. The follwoing APIs are developed:

  • TopSites API: The API to access the sites displayed in speed-dial.
  • History API: The API to interact with the browser history.
  • Cookies API: The API to interact with & set cookies.

Also, I am greatly thankful to my mentor David Rosca for always helping me. Now for this week we have decieded to work on Tabs API, but it would more similar to Falkon C++ API rather than WebExtension API.

Happy Summers!
