As I've had a few new followers, by way of #introduction:
- I'm a free and open source software developer
- I contribute to #gnome, typically in the core platform libraries
- I mostly toot about my History of the GNOME project podcast (every week, on Thursday) and about my #gundam plastic models
- I try to keep my software development ranting to the bird site, but it may end up spilling over here

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

Hi everyone! My name is Chris. I develop apps for the GNOME desktop, and host social.libre.fi. I’m currently looking for full-time work so that I can pay essential things like food and rent. I would really appreciate any financial help you can spare.

More information about constraint layouts: https://blog.gtk.org/2019/07/02/constraint-layouts/
Of course, constraint layouts have a cost. Specialised, finely tuned layout managers beat general purpose ones. If you're shoving 100s of rows in a list box, you probably want to keep using the GtkListBox widget; but if you have a form view, or a complex UI with a known set of widgets, do give constraints a try, and you can avoid lots of nested boxes and messing around with alignment and expansion flags
Started working on it in late 2016, as a separate library for GTK 3, to be used by Endless for their applications. After writing the layout manager delegate class, I've spent the last 3 months cleaning up the solver and the various moving pieces; with the help of Matthias Clasen, we finally got it merged today, with a lot more features.
