Project Description

Sometimes when developing a GTK program, we want some nice 3D rendered content in it. And to do that, usually we want to use some Graphics API.

For OpenGL, we can easily solve that with GtkGLArea. But GL is not the only API exists; there's also a fancy new API called Vulkan (and even GTK itself have a backend for it), yet at the moment there is no such thing as GtkVulkanArea.

We need to fix that.

Goal for this Hackweek

Implement a widget serve roughly the same purpose of GtkGLArea, but for Vulkan. It doesn't need to be feature complete or production ready, we just want a quick and dirty PoC as a foundation for future implementations.

Looking for hackers with the skills:
