I like that point. Not a fan of glib and I try to avoid software that uses it.

Don't know how good they are, but I've run across several lighter
utf-8 C libraries:

I wrote my own and use it, so I haven't tested these. Thought they
were interesting though.

Also, Codeberg ( and ) was
recommended to me as an alternative to github for hosting code. So
far, it's been easier to work with than github. They were very
responsive to my support related questions. Might be worth checking

Best of luck on the project, Ryan.
