HTML inside panels

Hello,


Is it possible to render HTML content inside (custom) panels? Could one of them be used as a browser?
There's a discussion going on for adding support for godoc which is a webserver and thus delivers html content for documentation of go packages which would be a very good use case for this type of feature.
By panel I'm understanding the 'Maven Projects' panel that is opened from the attached picture.


Kind regards,
Florin

You can (any JLabel or JTextArea can display HTML), but you'll be limited to crappy Swing HTML 3.2 support. Eventually it should be possible to use JavaFX's JWebPane to embed a modern browser, but the current version of IntelliJ IDEA supports running on JDK versions that don't support JavaFX, so this won't work for all users.

The Markdown plugin has a very nice rendering panel. Why not do something similar for HTML?

I've since moved on from this and I don't see the need to continue the thread.
Lets leave it to rest?

Thank you.
