Sponsored by Mozilla and written in the new systems programming language Rust, the Servo project aims to achieve better parallelism, security, modularity, and performance.
Created by Mozilla Research, the Servo project is being built by a global community, from individual contributors to companies such as Mozilla and Samsung.
Servo currently supports Linux, OSX, Windows, Android, and Gonk (Firefox OS).
You can find what you need to install on your particular system on our github.
Servo is built with Cargo, the Rust package manager. We also use Mozilla's Mach tools to orchestrate the build and other tasks.
To build Servo in development mode. This is useful for development, but the resulting binary is very slow.
git clone https://github.com/servo/servo cd servo ./mach build --dev ./mach run tests/html/about-mozilla.html
For benchmarking, performance testing, or real-world use, add the
--release flag to create an optimized build:
./mach build --release ./mach run --release tests/html/about-mozilla.html
./mach run [url] to run Servo.
-p INTERVALturns on the profiler and dumps info to the console every INTERVAL seconds
-s SIZEsets the tile size for painting; defaults to 512
-zdisables all graphical output; useful for running JS / layout tests
The Servo Project encourages contributions from experienced and new developers alike. Look at the links at the bottom of the page to learn more and join hundreds of contributors worldwide working to help make Servo even better.
Contributions to Servo or its dependencies should be made in the form of GitHub pull requests. Each pull request will be reviewed by a core contributor (someone with permission to land patches) and either landed in the main tree or given feedback for changes that would be required. All contributions should follow this format, even those from core contributors.
Should you wish to work on an issue, please claim it first by commenting on the GitHub issue that you want to work on it. This is to prevent duplicated efforts from contributors on the same issue.
If you're looking for easy bugs, have a look at the E-Easy issue tag on GitHub.
See HACKING_QUICKSTART.md for more information on how to start working on Servo.
We follow the Rust Code of Conduct.
