Looks good. How stable is labwc now?
May try to build it on Void if I get some time.

@ohnonot, @packrat - sorry it took a while to reply, not sure where that week went.

labwc is still very alpha and is seriously missing lots of features and finesse. I aim to keep it pretty sparse, but even so, there is a long way to go.

Having said that, I have started to use it as my daily driver - just firing it up from a tty. I suppose that doesn't mean much as I mostly just use terminals and firefox.

We're at approx 3500 lines-of-code, which is pretty small. I am mostly just refactoring and getting my head around things. Want to build a stable and correct base before anything else.

Re: wayland and labwc

Nice, nice.
Did you actually re-use any openbox code, beyond (parts of) the theme engine?

No big_smile

I think that on the whole, wayland/wlroots is so different to X11 that it’s easier to re-write.

Didn’t like how openbox parses xml; so took a simpler approach.
Same with parsing xbm buttons.

I think I might re-use bits of their menu implementation though. Looks tidy.

I do obviously look at how they did things and draw inspiration from it.
