A multipart MIME document viewer and editor

Current version: 0.5


Wemed allows you to create, edit and view multipart MIME documents, including mail message (.eml) files and web page archives (.mhtml)

MIME is defined by rfc5322, which is a revision of rfc2822, itself a successor to rfc822. Modern eml files are still given the MIME type of message/rfc822.

Wemed is based on gtk, webkit2gtk and gmime, and is licensed under the GPLv3

Q & A

How do I install wemed?
For Arch Linux, wemed is available from the AUR:

$ yaourt -S wemed
Ubuntu users can fetch the binary from Launchpad:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ohw-giles/wemed
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install wemed
The launchpad PPA is out of date and I have no interest in maintaining it.

To install from source:
$ # first install development libraries for gtk, webkit2gtk and gmime
$ git clone
$ cd wemed
$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .
$ make
$ sudo make install
