    "Automatically figuring out which parent objects the class you're subclassing derives from"

    AFAIK this is a language limitation, there is no way in a Rust macro to take a type and get all the traits that are implemented for that type.

    "Helpers for properties and signals"

    There is an open issue for this: https://github.com/gtk-rs/gtk-rs-core/issues/27

    "A flat list of methods, instead of the public/imp split"

    You can already do this in your code and use "pub fn" and "fn" like normal.

    "I feel like I had a difficult time figuring out how to share state between widgets. You end up with lots of OnceCell, Rc, and RefCell, and it quickly becomes confusing,"

    I think you are supposed to use bind_property and the gtk::Expression objects to do data binding, though that part is not so convenient to use from C or Rust either.

  • How to (properly) use subclassing in gtk4-rs?

    Ideally this should be automated with a nice derive macro, see https://github.com/gtk-rs/gtk-rs-core/issues/27 . How that could look exactly is still up to discussion and not so easy while keeping it flexible. That derive macro would then likely also work with the id: usize parameter to the property setter/getter instead of the string name.
