Re: [Gimp-developer] [Gimp-user] How to compile a vala GIMP plugin on Windows pc?

To be clear, I don't speak for gimp, haven't worked on it even, but did look into Windows programming for a 
possible job during a dry spell, and I'd rather code in COBOL with vi. So, sorry the intent was wasted.

  on Windows pc? These are incredibly unhelpful responses.It is fine to evangelize if you are also providing 
useful information, butone cannot simultaneously bemoan the lack of developers for a particularplatform and 
also chastise those developing on that platform.To the original questioner, I would suggest following 
Jernej's advice. I,unfortunately, don't regularly use Windows or Vala, but there are claims ofVala support in 
2.99.4 so someone must have had some success. I do have aWindows 10 machine that I installed Debian on using 
WSL2 (I may have eveninstalled it from the Microsoft Store) - that may be an easier solutionthan installing 
MSys2, but I cannot say authoritatively. If nothing else,it may be a better first step to ensure you can 
build the plugin onGIMP's primary development environment, then try it with MSys2.If you can document your 
Windows Vala Plugin build process in the Wiki thatwould be even better. This may be useful to get 
started:, GIMP would provide a Windows SDK that 
plugins could be builtagainst, but I don't know if anyone has considered that. It's quitepossible that with 
GObject introspection simply installing the GIMPexecutable provides that function and you only need a Vala 
compiler tocompile the Vala code (I don't know how linking works in that case, but itsounds nice).ChrisOn
