GTK-3 Tryton Client – Port Tryton Client to GTK+-3

iCrowdNewswire - Jul 5, 2016
GTK-3 Tryton Client
 
Port Tryton Client to GTK+-3
 
 
OVERVIEW
 
GTK+-2 is at the end of life, so it is important to switch to GTK+-3 to keep a native client for Tryton. This is also required to migrate the client from Python-2 to Python-3.
 

Help to migrate to GTK+-3

We have already started the work on issue5387 but we see that it is not going fast enough to catch with the trunk development. But now it is time to do the migration to GTK+-3 and to switch to Python-3.

Advantages

  • CSS
  • HTML5 backend
  • Wayland support
  • new widgets like: GtkStack, GtkHeaderBar, GtkListBox, GtkPopover, etc.
  • gesture/multi-touch
  • Python-3

Planning

  • For series 4.2:
    • add support of GTK+-3 with compatibility with GTK+-2
    • provide experimental build on GTK+-3 for Windows and MacOS
  • For series 4.4:
    • remove support of GTK+-2
    • start to add GTK+-3 only features
    • use 2to3 to support Python-3
