    Rant-time. I'll be honest, I'm utterly disappointed with Sway. I'm looking at it not as a user, but also as a possible contributor, who wants an i3 replacement in Wayland.

    Sway is a modern project which — surprise! — written in C, and also infested with global variables. And on top of it, it lacks any test suite, because the creator didn't like existing ones, so he decided no to have any.

    As a result, there's no way to catch any regressions whatsoever. And sure regressions are coming! E.g. just some minutes ago swaybar had crashed after waking up my laptop from suspend. I mean, it's to be expected when you have written a big project in a lang with weak type system, and didn't put any test suite whatsoever.

    I mean, it's a life, but I frustrated.

      And my post was a joke, as I made clear with the wink emoticon.
