I want us to hold off on that as well.

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
finding out.

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.
