This packages together the runtime and the core libraries. I want to be able to do the bulk of what I currently tend to do in D. That means:
Use maven as the backend.
You depend on specific versions of packages. You can override your dependencies’ dependencies.
So I have libawesome-2.0.5 that depends on libx11-7.8.14. You have libbetter-5.0.1 that depends on libawesome-2.0.5 and libx11-7.9.12. I have an app that depends on libbetter-5.0.1. It gets libx11-7.9.12.
I want to integrate with something standard and generic. Maybe bazel?
Start with a vim syntax file. Go for a language server as soon as reasonably practical. I think LSP supports syntax highlighting.
We want a binding generator for native libraries. At the very least, support GIR.
