AMA about Wayland or the Linux graphics stack, technical or otherwise

(standing offer)

@sir I am tempted to write a compositor. What are some of the biggest challenges when using wlroots?

@fred it's a lot of work is the main thing. You can get something which works in a day or two of work, but getting something good will take a lot of effort. wlroots does all of the hard parts, so mainly it comes down to investing time in molding what it provides into the sort of experience you want

@sir yes I understand, and I was hoping you could give a more precise answer. For instance, I already know OpenGL will be tricky as I have very little experience with rendering.

@fred I don't know anything about your experience or expertise. Just give it a shot and ask questinos when you get stuck.
