Bug Description

Our useragent is leading to facebook login suggesting installing the iphone app. Until we can merge the branch using the Browser component from the SDK, we should update the webview to use the same useragent logic.

  [ Ken VanDine ]
  * Use a MainView and pull in the UserAgent logic used in the Browser
    component. Using the correct useragent fixes things like facebook
    suggesting users should install the facebook app for iphone (LP:
    #1235259). (LP: #1235259)
  * Allow overriding the QML files used by placing them in
    /usr/share/signon-ui/qml If there is a webview.qml file in that
    directory, load it instead of using the one built into the
    resources. This is useful for debugging QML only changes on the
    device without needing to rebuild and install signon-ui. It is
    important to note, when overriding them you need to copy include the
    .qml and .js files into that directory. .

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * Allow LIBDIR and LIBEXECDIR to be overridden; install in multiarch
    path; set LIBEXECDIR=LIBDIR .

  [ Alberto Mardegan ]
  * Bump build dependency for XEmbed support .
  * Allow the request to be cancelled from the UI. Clients can provide a
    QML component to be used in order to create the authentication page,
    and this gives them a way to add a cancel button there. (LP:
  * Let the client override the Page component. . (LP: #1231691)
