Question: Is it possible to update the HTML being displayed?

See original GitHub issue

Please excuse me if it’s faux pas to ask a question in issues.

The way I’m using web-view is reading a few files, building a html-table and feeding that to web-view with

    let size = (900, 778);
    let resizable = false;
    let debug = true;
    let init_cb = |_webview| {};
    let frontend_cb = |_webview: &mut _, _arg: &_, _userdata: &mut _| {};
    let userdata = ();

Eventually I want to listen for changes in a file, and if there are reread that file and rebuild the html. Is it possible to simply swap out the html being displayed with this new rebuilt html?

@eedahl you can use web_view::escape to safely pass strings to JavaScript now, but it hasn’t been published to

Using this

webview.eval(format!("document.documentElement.innerHTML=String.raw`{}`", YOUR_HTML).unwrap();

looks like it works fine, but I did notice that only the JS in my original HTML was being parsed for some reason. I’m not sure if that’s a side effect of this or webkit.
