Just curious, how do you handle the whole RC<RefCell<>> story in Gtk-rs?

For me it made the point that languages with tracing GC or implicit reference counting are much better solution for doing GUI programming.

Hi Paulo,

I don't know if you are referring to the `clone!` macro described here[1]

[1] https://gtk-rs.org/blog/2019/12/15/new-release.html


Hi, this macro is new to me, it did not exist when I tried to have a go at Gtk-rs, so it simplifies not having to write such boilerplate ourselves, but like the author mentions it doesn't make it go away, it just gets hidden behind the macro.


Yes, previously this macro lived (in a simplified form, i.e. no @strong) in the examples provided by the gtk-rs developers. Now it's part of the gtk-rs bindings.
