I noticed that there was a recent branch that ports zim to gtk 3. I'm
sure that improves the esthetics, but I would think a far more ambitious
goal with a higher payoff would be to port to Qt.
The biggest gain thereby would be to the ability to run zim on an ios
device. Unless gtk has any plans to port to IOS (unlikely), this would
be a big way to gain exposure for this excellent software. After all
there must be half a billion iphones out there.
Additionally IOS doesn't really have any reader for .zim files, so zim
could actually fill this role as well.
I am also told that Qt tends to look more "native". In my experience
PySide is a lot easier to develop in then PyGtk, yet I understand such a
task may be overwhelming. At one point there was a somewhat feeble
effort to implement the GTK api with a Qt backend. If only we had that
Just how hard would such a project be?
