I’ll second this. Gtk is complex, with three layers (gtk, gdk, g). Then there are separate pieces like pango and Cairo. It’s not obvious how it all fits together and a slew of depreciation makes it hard to untangle.
What’s needed is a full blooded example. Start from main and show a pure gtk+3 app that takes button press, mouse moves, text entry and keystrokes, and uses them to update labels with different markup options. Throw in a clock display to show timers. Use multiple threads to show how to add idle functions. Use css.
It’s easier to grab a generic, fully featured example and cut it down than start with disjoint pieces. But I didn’t find one.
