Dear GTK+ devs,
It seems GTK+ might be in need of animation facilities some day, and we have
the same kind of issue in pigment. I was thinking that in this case, it
might be possible to hit two birds with one stone, since both projects are
C/GObject. I have started to design an animation library and do some "API
tests" to see what code using this design would look like. I am still early in
the process and haven't written a "real" line of code yet, but I think it's
time to speak about it. Are there other people here interested in this issue? I
guess so seeing the number of replies to the GtkTimeline bug.
Should we start a wiki page on live.gnome where we could centralise ideas
regarding that? Personally, I will start programming the API as soon as I have
a satisfying API, but I will be happier if it satisfies more than me. Also, my
employer (Fluendo Embedded) seems to agree that I work on this full time (or
almost), so I will be able to make this advance relatively quickly.
I have also seen that "Animation API" is on the menu of the hackfest
currently taking place. Have there already been discussions on this subject?
What do hackfest attendants think should be done for an animation API?
Also, I have written a blog article explaining some of my thoughts on the
