There's quite a lot of work coming back from gitohashi into lws...
originally gitohashi was split into a separate headless library that
could operate without linking to lws. That "libjsongit2" library
migrated to be a library iniside gitohashi a while ago, and since
gitohashi itself relies on lws, lws became available to the bits in the
library as a dependency. Conversely, stuff in the library is then
available to migrate to lws instead if it also has uses outside of
Lwsac is a way to allocate for an unknown but potentially large number
of small allocations efficiently. Basically it allocates a linked-list
of chunks and then sub-allocates inside them without any attempt to
track the individual allocations except the high-water mark in the chunk.
It replaces individual per-string or per-struct mallocs, and has the
advantage when you're finished with it, you simply call an api to free
the chunks, not the sub-allocations.
There's an example how to use here, it is very simple.
This may seem a bit trivial but aside from being useful in its own
right, it's central to a larger feature coming next.
