GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 764327
Incompatible version 1.0 (supported: 1.2)
Last modified: 2018-02-08 12:41:19 UTC
I've generated the gir file of St library:
g-ir-generate /usr/lib/gnome-shell/St-1.0.typelib > st.gir
Then I want to generate the page files with:
g-ir-doc-tool --language gjs st.gir -o st
st.gir: Incompatible version 1.0 (supported: 1.2)
This is really three bugs:
1. g-ir-generate should be updated to generate a 1.2 repository version
2. g-ir-generate does not allow roundtripping between GIR and typelib because the binary format is lossy (we added more features to the XML, in order to have better code generators, whereas dynamic languages can deal with the existing level of metadata)
3. g-ir-doc-tool is essentially a toy and it's currently unmaintained
I can easily fix (1), but (2) and (3) are going to be much more problematic.
