Description

In future, the GUI will depend not only on libBornAgainCore, but also on libMVVM. We should treat these dependencies on an equal footing. Either we merge libMVVM into the BornAgain repository. Or we split the latter into Core and GUI.

Keeping everything in one repository won't scale; it prevents adoption of Fit and MVVM by other projects. So splitting, if technically feasible, is preferable. Probably not just Core and GUI but, say, Fit, PyFit, Core, PyCore, GUI.

As a side benefit, CI of GUI would be much accelerated.

For managing dependencies, see the "Live at Head" model in the Google software negineering book, Ch. 21 https://learning.oreilly.com/library/view/software-engineering-at/9781492082781/ch21.html

For cross-project testing pipelines, see https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/ci/multi_project_pipelines.html.

However, this idea goes counter our recently established practice of using issue tracker as CRM system. Customers want to contact BornAgain, not BornAgainPyCore or BornAgainGUI. So go for a proper CRM software? Or a separate tracker?

First split off MuMuFit. Come back to Core vs GUI later.
