Many thanks to pancake for his contribution to all these!

is an markup language that reuses the Vala compiler to write Gtk+ widgets through casual XML.

<HBox homogeneous="false">
      <Label label="_Hello" with-mnemonic="true" expand="false" fill="false"/>
      <Entry g:public="my_entry" text="World! "/>

  * compact XML syntax for describing Gtk widgets
  * code 'islands' (written in Vala) - for signal handling and other code in your widget class (so you don't modify the generated code ever)
  * doesn't depend on an external library at run-time (other than Gtk+)
  * much more readable than the usual UI boilerplate (e.g. you don't need to worry about temporary variables, or ever write hundreds of lines of code)
 * no Gtk+ magic - gtkaml can be used for any component/widget library, given that the composition method selection is specified in the *.implicits file

Gtkaml 0.2.x is currently in maintainence mode. Only releases to sync with Vala are made, and bugs may be fixed if they don't require re-architecturing.

Gtkaml 0.4 is in prototyping phase. Changes include re-using Vala's parser for expressions and Vala symbol resolver as much as possible, opening the oportunity to data binding based on 'notify' signal.
