Static functions

Detailed Description

A web engine URL scheme describes a URL scheme from the web engine’s perspective, specifying how URLs of this scheme should be parsed, and which security restrictions should be placed on resources originating from such URLs.

Custom URL schemes must be configured early at application startup, before creating any Qt WebEngine classes. In general this means the schemes need to be configured before a QGuiApplication or QApplication instance is created.

Every registered scheme configuration applies globally to all profiles.

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
    QWebEngineUrlScheme scheme("myscheme");
    scheme.setSyntax(QWebEngineUrlScheme::Syntax::HostAndPort);
    scheme.setDefaultPort(2345);
    scheme.setFlags(QWebEngineUrlScheme::SecureScheme);
    QWebEngineUrlScheme::registerScheme(scheme);
    ...
}

To actually make use of the custom URL scheme, a QWebEngineUrlSchemeHandler must be created and registered in a profile.

QWebEngineUrlScheme

Constructs a web engine URL scheme with default values.

PySide2.QtWebEngineCore.QWebEngineUrlScheme.Syntax

This enum type lists types of URL syntax.

To apply the same-origin policy to a custom URL scheme, WebEngine must be able to compute the origin (host and port combination) of a URL. The Host... options indicate that the URL scheme conforms to the standard URL syntax (like http ) and automatically enable the same-origin policy. The Path option indicates that the URL scheme uses a non-standard syntax and that the same-origin policy cannot be applied.

Constant

Description

QWebEngineUrlScheme.HostPortAndUserInformation

The authority component of a URL of this type has all of the standard elements: host, port, user name, and password. A URL without a port will use the defaultPort (which must not be PortUnspecified ).

QWebEngineUrlScheme.HostAndPort

The authority component of a URL of this type has only the host and port elements. A URL without a port will use the defaultPort (which must not be PortUnspecified ).

QWebEngineUrlScheme.Host

The authority component of a URL of this type has only the host part and no port. The defaultPort must be set to PortUnspecified .

QWebEngineUrlScheme.Path

A URL of this type has no authority component at all. Everything after scheme name and separator character (:) will be preserved as is without validation or canonicalization. All URLs of such a scheme will be considered as having the same origin (unless the NoAccessAllowed flag is used).

PySide2.QtWebEngineCore.QWebEngineUrlScheme.SpecialPort

This enum type defines special values for defaultPort .

Constant

Description

QWebEngineUrlScheme.PortUnspecified

Indicates that the URL scheme does not have a port element.

PySide2.QtWebEngineCore.QWebEngineUrlScheme.Flag

This enum type specifies security options that should apply to a URL scheme.

Constant

Description

QWebEngineUrlScheme.SecureScheme

Indicates that the URL scheme is potentially trustworthy . This flag should only be applied to URL schemes which ensure data authenticity, confidentiality, and integrity, either through encryption or other means. Examples of secure builtin schemes include https (authenticated and encrypted) and qrc (local resources only), whereas http is an example of an insecure scheme.

QWebEngineUrlScheme.LocalScheme

Indicates that the URL scheme provides access to local resources. The purpose of this flag is to prevent network content from accessing local resources. Only schemes with the LocalAccessAllowed flag may load resources from a scheme with the Local flag. The only builtin schemes with this flag are file and qrc.

QWebEngineUrlScheme.LocalAccessAllowed

Indicates that content from this scheme should be allowed to load resources from schemes with the Local flag.

QWebEngineUrlScheme.NoAccessAllowed

Indicates that all content from this scheme should be forced to have unique opaque origins: no two resources will have the same origin.

QWebEngineUrlScheme.ServiceWorkersAllowed

Indicates that the Service Workers API should be enabled.

QWebEngineUrlScheme.ViewSourceAllowed

Indicates that the View Source feature should be enabled.

QWebEngineUrlScheme.ContentSecurityPolicyIgnored

Indicates that accesses to this scheme should bypass all Content-Security-Policy checks.

static PySide2.QtWebEngineCore.QWebEngineUrlScheme.registerScheme(scheme)
Parameters

schemeQWebEngineUrlScheme

Registers scheme with the web engine’s URL parser and security model.

It is recommended that all custom URL schemes are first registered with this function at application startup, even if the default options are to be used.

Warning

This function must be called early at application startup, before creating any WebEngine classes. Late calls will be ignored.
