This project is to enable individuals to request the inclusion of software / packages into the Solus repository.
It's really not more lightweight than gnome-terminal. That's a myth post GTK2. They both use the same libvte and gtk3 libs and are within 4-10 MB of RAM of eachother for the same number of open tabs.
Thanks so much I just need that package. I was using arch budgie just for this :(

Yeah, they look to be the same oddly enough...
I really don't know but looking at the files they are the same with a quick look
erm that stuff is inside steam already or are they different ?

I'm not really sure why people are concerned with them being Python or not. As stated by @kyrios123, budgie-desktop does not accept PRs for python-based applets. That does not mean third-party applets cannot be.
Hi there, are you talking about the 3 applets i proposed ? quick-note , weathershow and kangaroo ? I'm talking only about those, because i'm not packaging the all applets in the tarball.
Looks to be 53.9% Python and 39.3% Vala according to GitHub
Hi there, maybe i'm wrong but they were rewritten in Vala
I'll pick this one: I considered a couple of times submitting a package request for this but I was always busy with something else or too lazy to do it 😛
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.

Please refer to this guide for a proper request
plz available this package
Yea it's a sad frustrating that the d3d9 patches haven't been updated yet, but I appreciate the fact we've been able to use them for as long as we have. I think we need to look into the best way of supporting both wine proper and any active d3d9 / gallium nine-based wine forks, or alternatively do away with the concept of officially supported D3D9-based WINEs. Most of that aspect of the ecosystem is moving to DXVK+Proton, which I intend on officially supporting on the future, and there has been progress of having D39 support in DXVK to just translate those calls to Vulkan.
Currently this task is more of a holder, until an official stable version comes out, but feel free to check it out (things are currently working great for me).
The repo in question is not maintained, what you should actually be looking at is https://github.com/NicoHood/arc-theme

There is a difference between adding applets to Budgie core project and developing 3rd party applets for Budgie.
The rule is for applets that are onboarded on the core project.
This being said, even if the devs have no intention to submit their work to the Budgie core project, Pythonic applets support will be discontined at some point and if they intend to be future proof, they must migrate to Vala or C.
It's explained on the github repo:
I may remember that someone said at some point that python addons wouldn't be included in Solus and that they would need to be ported to be included, I'm probably wrong though, don't take my word for it !
