Links, a CUI web browser ported to the Zipit 2
This is just a quick compile of Links, the console-based web browser for the Zipit 2 with SSL support. No tweaking has been done to the browser. This is based off of the official Links source code and OpenSSL.
NOTE: You may want to use the latest OpenEmbedded build instead of the port documented here.
First, you'll need a shell environment to run Links in. Then, copy the "links" executable (in the archive attached to this page) to the "bin" folder on the SD card.
Once the Zipit 2 is booted with your SD card, enter "links" into the terminal. Press "g" to open an address bar to visit a site. Use the direction pad to browse a page. Use the ":)" button to bring up the task menu. Finally, press "q" to exit Links.
The latest release is available here.
