  • Lazarus IDE 3.0 Released

    I like to use GoVCL [0] as it provides the GUI of Lazarus [1] including drag-n-drop form designer but with Go as the main language.

    GoVCL's author built a C library called liblcl [2] which is what GoVCL uses to control the GUI, so if you know C you can use it instead of Go.

    I'm building a lightweight Steam chat client with GoVCL so that I don't need the official client that takes like 200-300mb ram just to show text [3].
