#2893 Moving FWT pods to their own repo

brian Tue 18 Jul 2023

I'd like to propose a transition plan to move the FWT infrastructure out of the core Fantom repo and distribution.  The FWT code, all based on SWT, has gotten a little creaky in its old age, and I suspect is rarely used.   Plus it causes a lot of friction dealing with the different SWT jars to build from source.

So the plan is to create a repo called "fwt" under the the Fantom GitHub organization and move the following pods out of the core repo: 

  • gfx
  • fwt 
  • webfwt 
  • icons 
  • flux 
  • fluxText

The code will still be there if you need it, but we probably won't spend much time maintaining it in the future.

Let us know if you have any comments.

Hi, if the pods get uploaded to Eggbox so the compiled versions are easily accessible, then I don't think I have a problem with this.
