Gnome Fractal
Closed, LockedPublic


Fractal is a Gtk+ client written in Rust.

Project/product Homepage:
Why we should include this into the repository, i.e. what does it do that the alternatives do not?
The only other GUI Matrix client in the repo is, which is a Electron app, so it would be good to provide a native alternative. Also since there are multiple IRC-Clients, why not multiple Matrix clients.
Is it open source? yes

Rejected for inclusion. These are all in an alpha release state, clearly a bit early to be requesting this.

@JoshStrobl I think this could be reevaluated. Last time this was looked at was 3/16/18. From what I can tell the project has reached a stable state. I am currently working through a package.yml for this.

I have been going down the dependency tree. Fractal requires gspell >= 1.8, but Solus only packages 1.6.1. gspell 1.8 requires enchant >= 2.1.3. I saw in the enchant repo that an upgrade to version 2 has been attempted in the past, but that was a year ago. Has any progress been made on that Josh? I noticed this commit specifically: No reasoning was supplied however.

For reference the tar file linked is to the devs fork, and not the actual source code. is where the magic happens.

This is going to be permanently rejected. It requires libhandy, which is not only a library with a currently unstable API/ABI, but entirely oriented towards mobile UX. I find it entirely unacceptable to start requiring mobile UX libraries for desktop applications, or applications which in our case will only be used in a laptop / desktop environment.
