Little teaser of yesterdays work. More to come.
@hergertme Neat! Any idea how it would work with external Glade catalogs? Could a Flatpak extension point be added?
@KekunPlazas The goal is to auto-discover and wire up catalogs, templates, etc.
@hergertme So if I understand correctly (at least I wish that's what would happen) : if I add libfoo with Glade support in my app's Flatpak manifest, Builder would let me use libfoo's widgets in its UI designer by using the last build my app to discover them.
@KekunPlazas Certainly the goal, haven't written any code to do that yet. Still finishing up basic embedding semantics. Not using all of gladeui's widgetry so we can get an improved experience.
@hergertme 😱 😍
@hergertme org.gnome.Tunes? 🤔
@tbernard It's just my test playground app I use to put Builder through it's paces.
@hergertme heh, i was hoping for a super secret new app :)
@hergertme In GUADEC you told me that there were some ideas to rework/repurpose Glade or something that would take its role. Is this going in that direction or is it just a way to embed Glade in Builder?
@aledomu Gtk 3 has a limited lifetime. We aren't going to waste a lot of time on it. So just getting glade working soon means we have *something* working. We'll have to do something new for when we move to Gtk 4.
