Title: Provocative question: Better fork Inkscape than develop Scribus?
Post by: lochi009 on June 17, 2022, 06:44:46 pm
Hello,

I've a thougt, that may be understood here as a provocation.

I'm asking myself, if there is a realistic chance to extend Inkscape to a fully equiped TDP-Software,
since a substantial development of Scribus has seemingly stopped for quite a while.

It seems to me, that a lot of the needed functionalities are already implemented in Inkscape anyways.
So it may be easier to extent Inkscape than it is to get Scribus into a modern shape.

What do you think about it?

Kind regards

or: better fork the e-bike than develop the sailboat?
…depending on your needs one might look more advanced than the other…

i don't think it's best practice to target an all purpose program. but – yes, the vector drawing and editing interface of scribus is very limited in comparison to inkscape.

Sounds like a promising idea. When are you starting?

Is this not the wrong place to ask? You should ask the Inkscape developers.
