Webview component 👀

I’ve been away, so this is a tardy announcement! :wink:

The webview component allows you to embed web pages/assets directly in your app. Add a link, choose the viewport size and decide whether you want users to be able to scroll or not.

Now you can put Glide in Glide…!



Awesome! Thanks so much, @JackVaughan and Glide team!

Can you webview another glide app ?

Doesn’t work when I try in staging.

Thanks for this! I’d been trying to find a way to embed a 360 spherical image and nothing had worked - but this component does the trick. (I use Momento360 to host the images.)

Why don’t have full size, the large size its to small to full screen. I don’t under stand…

Have you tried using the web view action on a button instead if you need a full screen web view?

Yes, but from a button you go to the default browser and exit the app. I prefer that it stay within the app.

The ‘web view’ action on a button does not leave the app, however the ‘open link’ action will.

@JackVaughan – frankly, and with a large respect: I paid for the pro app; want to use webview component and, while testing several urls, I have received errors, either “this content is blocked…” or “… may not allow itself to be embedded…” etc. – yes, I see the note in documentation about sites “preventing themselves” from being embedded… - so what do I need to do to allow the site to be embedded? line of code? it will be helpful to know - thank you!!

It is the block from the website and Glide can’t do much about this, as I understand.


Thanks @ThinhDinh - I understand – however what type of block? just for my own sanity sake I’ve tested secure and non-secure sites (those without https fail 100%, with https randomly) — google-hosted or google sites fail – so what’s the commonality here? Out of pure curiosity, I’d want to double check and perhaps even research it before I’d offer a vague statement in docs AND: I’m frankly quite ticked off at this, especially that it is advertised as a pro option …


Glide can perhaps handle the failure better and that’s what I’ve asked for.
