    but this shouldn't be too annoying

    @yyoncho
    Not queries. I mean links like in https://github.com/rougier/elegant-emacs
    David DeSimone
    @DavidDeSimone
    yeah, I'm picturing they open emacs-ng, and are welcomed by a screen like the above but with links for common configurations or useful tools. Signal boost packages and configurations that people may not know about if they are fresh to emacs.

    I just saw somebody asking questions in the remacs room...maybe it would be good to have a help room or something similar
    but this can't be done in gitter like in discord right
    Ivan Yonchovski
    @yyoncho
    I think that there can be multiple rooms
    (Not sure how)
    David DeSimone
    @DavidDeSimone
    yeah I don't know gitter very well beyond using it for chatting
    but I'm all for more rooms if possible

    About the start page - emacs start page is like that for political reasons. Then just cannot link doom/spacemacs/magit, etc.
    The webrender stuff generally can run in a browser right? I think that having decoupled UI is very interesting feature(like Neovim)

    @brotzeit
    although I have no clue this doesn't sound trivial to me
    David DeSimone
    @DavidDeSimone
    the different start page, or the decoupled UIs?
    brotzeit
    @brotzeit
    the latter
    :D
    different start page sounds like good-first-issue
    David DeSimone
    @DavidDeSimone
    yeah I don't know enough to comment on the decoupled UI either. I agree it sounds hard.
    but I think the new start page can be something we start making moves on in the very near future.

    @brotzeit
    sure why not
    first impression is important
    the next steps would be general appearance and basic configuration

    @mpereira
    decoupled UI would certainly be a big effort, just like it was for Neovim. they nailed it though :)
    someone shared my post on reddit by the way, if you'd like to check out the discussion

    @brotzeit
    I'm no expert, but I think it will be tougher to achieve this for emacs than for vim
    some time ago I looked at their libvterm code because I was working on implementing it for remacs, and it seemed to me that the vim code doesn't seem to be as complex as the emacs codebase
    Murilo Pereira
    @mpereira
    aye

    @harryfei what are your thoughts on that?

    emacs-ng/emacs-ng#153 It sounds like someone got clojurescript working on ng

    i need to try that myself. I think a lot of people would be excited if that works. Especially if you can call eslip functions through the JS layer
    brotzeit
    @brotzeit
    nice
    Murilo Pereira
    @mpereira
    that is sweet

    @harryfei
    Not harder than webrender :smile: @mpereira @yyoncho
    We can add a new grahpic backend(just like webrender backend) which using RPC api to contact GUI frontends.

    @yyoncho
    @harryfei does it make sense to abstract webrender backend to allow running it locally and remote?
    Harry Fei
    @harryfei
    It's very practical to do that

    @jobez
    i sort of gleamed this from skimming through the issues, but the convention to marshall data from elisp land to js land is to call .json on a given object? is there a way to go from js obj to elisp object via similar method?

    hey, tried build with web-render and ran into an issue that feels like it might happen to others. Also the readme alludes to the error, so I was curious if someone can share the exact fix
    emacs-ng/emacs-ng#154

    thanks again

    David DeSimone
    @DavidDeSimone
    are you operating in a VM? I saw that issue when running in virtualBox, and I needed to enable 3D acceleration to solve it

    i am on my linux desktop

    @DavidDeSimone
    interesting, I will have to defer to @harryfei then

    @petr-tik
    let me know if you need other info. It's an AMD desktop

    Something related to rust-windowing/glutin#1262
    I think it means our OS's GL library need to support vsync extension.
    petr-tik
    @petr-tik
    IIRC, Is it possible to support systems without VSYNC? I don’t know too much about drivers, so would appreciate any pointers
    Can you try to add .with_vsync(false) here?
    I find a option in glutin which we are using for window library.
