Re: [Vala] Is goocanvas best for scrapbook type app?

It depends, which output do you want from this application. Mx is great
if you only want to get a picture from the canvas later. GooCanvas has
the ability to export into an SVG Vector Graphics Format (and Picture
export as well). But Alexandre is right - ask at the Gtk List they have
more experience.

To answer your question, my personal favorite is the Mx toolkit (, since it allows what you want and you
can include animations in a very easy and natural way. However, it does
require support for 3D graphics.
