What parts of the Inkscape codebase do I need to modify to incorporate Skia
as a rendering backend, or are there limitations tying Inkscape to Cairo,
and what approach should I take if it's viable?
I've previously tried to hack on the codebase, but I'm a Qt developer, so
found it difficult even to just modify UI dialogs, which will be important
to provide an option to switch to GPU rendering.
Even though I've started writing a new vector graphics tool with Qt, and
gotten Skia working with OpenGL, I'd rather prefer not to re-incorporate
Please join us in celebrating Inkscape's 20th Anniversary on Saturday,
November 18, at 12:00 UTC (Session 1) and / or 18:00 UTC (Session 2) in
our BBB room .
You'll hear Inkscape stories from fellow contributors, learn about the
history of the project, and ask questions, too!
We look forward to seeing you there!
