Outreachy - Week 02, Day 01!

December 09, 2019

Task for the week:

  • Understand the structure and working of libdazzle’s example application.


  • Try to replicate the gnome-builder “search and replace bar” widget (just the wire-frame) in the Gtranslator project.

Progress of the day:

  • I finished setting up and building the libdazzle’s example application. What I learnt from the process:
    • How to setup a GNOME project structure from scratch.
    • How to write meson.build files for simple projects from scratch.
    • How & where to add external dependencies for the project (in either case when the application has flatpak manifests or just meson.build files).
    • And lastly, how to make sure the project is installable.


Till tomorrow. o/
