waypiedock: a dock in the shape of a pie, for wayland

I was a very happy piedock user, longing for sway support.
Ended up writing this single file in python/gtk3: waypiedock.
This is work in progress, I hope it comes handy for some of you. Any help welcome!

Interesting.  How about a MAKEPKG for it?  (Or, if you are still invovolved in Gentoo, an ebuild, for that matter)

Hello ewaller, thanks for your interest! I'm still running gentoo, yeah cool
...and still taking advantage of this warm and reactive community smile

You put the finger on something that itches me. For waypiedock, and lizzy as well: do you mind if we talk a bit more on the packaging subject?

Those are single-files scripts with 0 to 1 dependency (over python).
Even making a python package for them feels overkill to me neutral let alone packaging myself for all distribs... I lazily leave this to pros.
Guix, appimage, packagekit, anything seems overkill.
I get and deeply feel your point though. And I'm in need for a way-to-go.
A meta-package information-file with convertor-utils to main distributions packaging systems should be great, but if there is a well adopted one, I know it not.

For now I've made a release so any volunteer can package (and I'll be thankful)...
Any insight welcome.

Meanwhile I tagged a new version, moving the configuration away from the code, for easy updates...
