Wayland app development

I am looking for a tutorial or any other ressource on how to write graphical applications for a wayland desktop only using low level libraries (so no gtk or qt - for learning purposes.). In X, you just read any xlib tutorial and start coding, but since wayland has a different architecture I have issues finding a starting point. I guess libwayland-client.h is where I should start looking, but for me personally, the in-code documentation is always a bit hard to follow.

Re: Wayland app development

Hello,
I am also interested to learn how to write a simple Wayland window. Did you found something, a tutorial that you would recommend? I would like to test together with Vulkan...
Greetings...

You may be interested in this example:

Note the enormous understatement:

README wrote:

Wayland configuration is verbose


Resist the GNU world order.

For vulkan, this example may help you. It supports wayland and x windows.
