Wouldn't GTK be a better option? If using Python, the only additional
package you need is python3-gobject. It might have some benefits, like
free Wayland support, if the SIG is moving to Sway some day.
I am willing to help with that.
Well, the i3 SIG will most likely never move to Wayland (just by
design). We'll all eventually move to Sway (probably), but then we'll
just join the existing sway SIG ;-).
I have proposed to use python-tk as it requires absolutely no
dependencies besides Python. The Rust version that I created, that is
based on gnome-tour, was written in GTK as well and to be frankly
honest: I did not like it that much, it appeared overly complex to me
for what we're trying to achieve here (more or less just a slide show).
However, if you're willing to write a good chunk of the code and ensure
that it is maintainable, then I will most certainly not limit you to any

As the include directive is fairly new, most existing users might not
have one in their config.
I don't think that the include directive can be used for this
automatically. If at all, we could provide a custom color scheme config
file and document how you can include that in your configs.
