Is this something you plan to contribute back to the original repository?

Hi Jacob,

I'm pretty new with D, and I'm not a full-time coder.
A learning goal was to see if I could figure out how to create a dub package for DWT.
I feel I am well on the way to achieve this goal (32-bit works, need to test 64-bit).
I respect your work, as well as the others, in porting DWT from SWT and maintaining it.
I don't want to "muck" up your repository.
Having said that, I would much prefer this be part of the original github repository.
Then, I could retire my dwtlib dub package in favor of the updated github repository.
What are your thoughts?

I would like to have a Dub package for DWT, but I haven't created one yet because I have not been able to figure out a good way to deal with the submodules or the examples. I guess the submodules could be inlined directly in the main repository.

I'm also not sure how the configurations work in Dub. Will the correct configuration be selected automatically based on platform?

Yes, the dub.sdl in my dwtlib will auto select "linux" or "windows" and choose the dflags and lflags accordingly.  https://github.com/jasc2v8/dwtlib

The base/java and core/swt modules work well. What other submodules would you want included?

I just released rdub which would be a great tool for the snippets.
https://github.com/jasc2v8/rdub

Do you want to take a look at the structure for dwtlib, or do you want me to do a pull request on dwt-tools to show you what I have in mind?

I mean that Dub doesn't work that well together with submodules. I'm referring to "base", "org.eclipse.swt.gtk.linux.x86", "org.eclipse.swt.snippets" and "org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86".

I've already looked a bit at dwtlib. I see that you inline the submodules, although the snippets are missing. I'm leaning towards inlining the submodules as well.

A pull request would be nice. For this to work I think a pull request for inlining the submodules should be separate from the rest of the changes.

I added the snippets to dwtlib v2.0.0 https://code.dlang.org/packages/dwtlib

I have Dub working well with the submodules and snippets!

The snippets will not run as-is if you clone from github.

You must fetch and build the package for the snippets to work properly.

The readme.md has instructions to:
   dub fetch dwtlib, build the libs, then test the package
   Using rdub to run the snippets.
   (32-bit tested, 64-bit todo)

The "secret sauce" is in the top folder dub.sdl
It provides the proper dflags and lflags for either windows or linux

If you feel this folder structure works for dwt-tools, let me know.

After I've tested on 64-bit, then I will feel more confident to do a pull request and you can decide if the final product works for you.

Thank you for your collaboration!
