Hi there Fediverse 👋,

This is the Mastodon account for the Vala Programming Language - "A Familiar Way To Develop Applications"

Over the years, has been used across the ecosystem to create apps, as the main programming language for creating apps in and more.

Now with this Mastodon account, you can see what we're up to and where this language will go next!

Which platform(s) do you use Vala on?

(If you use a platform not on included in the poll, feel free to include it in a comment below)

Five reasons to use :

- Perfect integration with GNOME
- Compiles to native code with small binaries
- Fast compile times
- Nice and welcoming community
- Very familiar syntax

I love writing apps for the . The fact that all 1st (& most 3rd) party apps are using the same tech stack ( + + ) and having access to all that source code is a huge boon.

Imagine if you could turn your favourite code editor into a IDE…

Now stop imagining because that’s already possible thanks to the Vala Language Server: github.com/vala-lang/vala-lang

Here are our 3 reasons to check out Black Box:

1. It's a GTK 4 libadwaita terminal.
2. It's beautiful!
3. It's customisable. There's a good amount of preferences and theming options.

(It's written in too by the way 😉)

It's been a while since I've shown a screenshot from Replay, so here's a little peek at the view for a game in the library! (And yes, there are some bugs, "1m ago" isn't a time duration 😆)
