I agree that we need a more solid base.
I want people to really have a go with making GUI toolkits in D
without the worry about how to do the cross platformy technical things.
Is dlangui a good start on this?
No, too much code for what the base needs.
For windowing you want it just above what the OS does in a cross
platform abstracted way.
So no controls support or any other gruff that a GUI toolkit provides.
We just don't know what could be done yet and I'm looking forward to
I think improving dlangide will give us many opportunities for what a
good D native GUI library needs.
No, it already has its core code. By in large what you want to innovate
is the core code, not what a specific control does.
I'm not saying dlangui is the wrong way to go. We just don't know which
way is right just yet and that is ok.
