Re: [Gimp-developer] Xsane with Gimp on Mac OS X

At one point, I was thinking the same thing! Also for Windows, use the
native libraries.

Can you share your code offline with me? I'm not promising obviously since
I'm not at all a good programmer.

Hmm... is something broken with the TWAIN scanner plugin on Mac, or
have scanner drivers moved away from using the TWAIN system and so that's
not picking up your driver?

The TWAIN driver had issues on macOS. I think that for macOS the right way
forward is to implement a plugin that uses the ImageCapture libraries. This
will give you imports from scanners as well as cameras (including
iphones/ipads) for all devices that ship with appropriate macOS drivers.

I once started working on such a plugin but I have no interest in
finishing it at this moment. It is not in a good enough shape to put in
git. If anyone wants to continue working on this, let me know and I will
happily share the code that I wrote as a starting point.
