wxWidget bindings for Open Source Swift?

Postby --marc » Mon Apr 18, 2016 8:28 am

Is anyone working on some "wxSwift" wxWidgets bindings for the Open Source version of Apple's Swift language?

Alternately, do C wrappers exist for wxWidgets since Swift can (bridge to) interact with C APIs?

Thanks.

There are more stringent wxW needs that nobody is working on. It would be really, really hard to believe that somebody is already working on a 4 month old language.

A quick google reveals http://wxc.sourceforge.net

hmm... apparently wxWidgets could benefit from more development resources.

Although this may seem counter intuitive, wxWidgets could potentially attract new talent by providing a cross platform GUI toolkit for Swift

Swift's "meteoric" rise into TIOBE Index & RedMonk Programming Language Ranking "top 20" has been noted to be without historical precedence.

Swift's current lack of a cross platform GUI and strong upward momentum, presents a window of opportunity. IMHO.

ah. yes. google. I was focused on the wxWidgets.org: wxWiki Bindings list in search of something more-or-less officially recognized by wxWidgets.

I will see how http://wxc.sourceforge.net is as a starting point.

Thanks for the reply.
