A [very little] related subject about all GUI fans/curious:
I'm developing a multiplatform Window System based on SDL, main goals
* portability (of course)
* alpha transparency (either in a simgle color fill or an entire
* themes (same philosofhy that alpha)
* size (I'm not happy with actual HUGE Window Systems)
* speed (that's why previous mail I sent to this list I asked for
mmx/sse, we'll need it for slow machines if user wants to use alpha)
Sounds not very new to me. Everything you list here is already done.
People are just to stupid to use it.
Exactly. I dont see a reason for not to use paragui if your project is
based in C++. In my case, I used it for my old project, for this new I
need something based on C.
I REALLY see some reasons for not use paragui: First because I DON'T use
c++ (and I'll not do it). Second, paragui doesn't handle themes nor
widgets my way, I've implemented a very flexible & cool canvas system
based on those ideas by the Enlightenment team, they have very cool &
innovative ideas, but I prefer SDL as the development backend
Another thing I forgot to mention others Window System don't have is
Have in mind I'm developing a Window Server, not only a Toolkit like gtk
or qt, so a client designed to run under it will be fully portable to
all SDL supported platforms
I know, you'll say "but... what for? a program written in SDL already
runs in those platforms", yes, but It can't open more than one window,
and also all clients of such a Window Server will have CONSISTENT look &
feel :), even if you are running a remote client, it will use YOUR
And finally, it will solve that great GUI problem ever asked...
