I'm in the process of collating the patches atm.

I'm preparing a Docker image with the xwidget branch build environment
to enable people to try it out more easily.

The docker file and other things were moved to a new repo:


I hope to prepare a better report when I verified that the images are
good enough for public consumption.

Menwhile, the Dockerfile looks like this:
FROM fedora:20

# install things we need to build the emacsxwidget branch
RUN yum -y install git

RUN yum -y groupinstall "Development Tools"
RUN yum -y install gobject-introspection-devel webkitgtk3-devel libjpeg-turbo 
libXpm-devel libungif-devel libjpeg-devel libnsurses-devel texinfo 
RUN yum -y install libtiff-devel
RUN yum -y install ncurses-devel
RUN yum -y install  xorg-x11-apps #this is just for debugging
run yum -y install gdb

RUN git clone  --depth 1 -b xwidget git://git.savannah.gnu.org/emacs.git xwidget

RUN     cd xwidget && git checkout xwidget &&           export CFLAGS=" -g" && 
./autogen.sh &&          ./configure --with-xwidgets --with-x-toolkit=gtk3 &&   
 make -j4

And you could try it with this unsecure xforward hack:
xhost +
docker run -it -v /tmp/.X11-unix/X76:/tmp/.X11-unix/X76 --env DISPLAY=:76 
d18554142086  /xwidget/src/emacs

of course using your own display numbers and docker image hash.
