I gave a quick try in my Windows10 VM. You can install VisualStudio
community for free. At install I checked only "Desktop development with
C++" it takes about 3G of disk space.
Once installed, open the "x64 Native Tool ..." there I already had
python and git working. So "pip install meson", "git clone https://gitl
ab.gnome.org/GNOME/glib.git", also you need to download ninja prebuilt
it's just 1 executable you can put anywhere in your path. Then
"meson.py _build" and that's it, all deps are built from subprojects.
Here build failed with this error:
[115/514] Compiling C object glib/glib@@glib-2.0@sha/gslice.c.obj.
c:\users\xavier claessens\glib\glib\valgrind.h(463): fatal error C1189:
#error: Unsupported compiler.
So work will be needed to make it actually work, but I don't think
that's going to be anything big. Having a CI doing that would
