Speaking of Hitori, I don’t have much time to maintain it at the moment, and there are some interestingopenfeature requests. If anybody is looking for a fun little project to take on, I am happy to mentor work on them.
Worked out an approach for versioning GTK+ in future, to improve the balance between stability and speed of development. This has turned into a wiki page.
I demoed Dunfell and added support for visualising GTasks to it. I don’t know how much time I will have for it in the near future, so help and feedback are welcome.
There was a detailed discussion of portals for Flatpak, including lots of use cases, and the basics of a security design were decided which allows the most code reuse while also separating functionality. Simon has written more about this.
I missed some of the architectural discussion about the future of GTK+ (including moving some classes around, merging some things and stripping out some outdated things), but I believe Benjamin had useful discussions with people about it.
If you want to install it, make sure you’ve got xdg-app installed, then:
# Install http://sdk.gnome.org/keys/gnome-sdk.gpg to /usr/share/ostree/trusted.gpg.d first
# Then set up the runtimes (if you haven’t already)
xdg-app add-remote --user gnome-sdk http://sdk.gnome.org/repo/
xdg-app install-runtime --user gnome-sdk org.gnome.Platform 3.18
xdg-app install-runtime --user gnome-sdk org.freedesktop.Platform 1.2
# Add the repository for Hitori, then install it
xdg-app add-remote --user --no-gpg-verify pwithnall-hitori https://people.collabora.co.uk/~pwith/xdg-app/repos/hitori/
xdg-app install-app --user pwithnall-hitori org.gnome.Hitori
# Play the game!
xdg-app run org.gnome.Hitori
Playing the game
Use of X11
What doesn’t work (yet)?
GSettings access (I may have misconfigured this, because it’s supposed to work)
I don’t plan to support this repository especially well, since it was just for playing around, but it shows that xdg-app is coming along nicely!
