Something I've been experimenting with and researching is building a desktop environment based off of Google's Material Design guidelines.
I've been experimenting with several different layouts, and plan to come up with a design using ideas from Unity, GNOME, elementary, and KDE.
I plan to build it using the QtCompositor APIs, which allow building a Wayland compositor using almost pure QML. Right now this is just a normal QML app, but I plan to turn it into an actual compositor soon.
If anyone is interested in following or contributing to the project, I will be putting code on https://github.com/quartz-os
, with my initial work on a Material Design toolkit in QML at https://github.com/quartz-os/qml-material
