The wayland compositor I'm writing has an infinite desktop, replacing workspaces with panning and zooming to get around


@mcol A neat concept, hmu if/when you want some extra hands on testing it!

@stuts It's still a while to go before it's usable, but if you want to help out with the development then contributions are always welcome! ;)

@mcol *cries in product manager*

I've been interested in doing some kind of GUI development but this seems like the deepest end of the ocean 😅

@stuts Not at all! All it takes to get familiar with how something like this works is to read the code! Normally there is a library doing all of the heavy lifting ;) In this case, wlroots, which is a library for making wayland compositors.
