tfw somebody says "sure, electron is bloated, but everything is bloated" -- like, just because a problem is already horrible doesn't make it OK to make it worse\!


@enkiv2 To be fair, it's actually not bloated. It is just not distributed a set of libraries, but a bundle. You can build it against your system libraries if they fit. :)
We have good ebuilds in and also a for .

@CyReVolt @enkiv2
It's still bloated, because I would not be running those libraries otherwise. And it's still bloated in that, even if I happened to be running some of them, I would not want to use them to render a GUI (since such a thing is easier done by xlib).
