There’s hope regarding Wayland.

I’ve tried dwl a few years back, but my keyboard didn’t work. This appears to have been fixed, probably due to advances in wlroots and this commit.

And look at it: It’s just about 3000 lines of C code. *That* is hackable. That is something that I can fix, extend, or adapt if needed. *That is the way to go.*

Thank goodness, finally some good news.

Well, I have a very basic setup going now that I can use for further experiments.

In the long run, I’m going to effectively fork dwl. I’m very glad that this project exists, saves me a lot of work. I think this is the only way forward for me – any other compositor out there requires making too many sacrifices.

The big question is: How stable is wlroots (the underlying Wayland library)? There appear to be _a lot_ of breaking changes in each release, these are the last two releases:

- https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/wlroots/wlroots/-/releases/0.17.0
- https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/wlroots/wlroots/-/releases/0.16.0

Will I have the resources to keep up with that? Maybe it’s _still_ too early to begin this journey. 🤔
