Yes, an include of glib.h seems actually missing, it should
probably[1] be added.
Well, after a small research, it is quite more complex.
First, to have ScintillaObject to be defined in ScintillaWidget.h, to
have to define PLAT_GTK to a value passing the #if preprocessor
directive (e.g. 1). But ScintillaWidget.h misses to include gtk/gtk.h too.
Then if you would include sciwrappers, for now you have to do:
  #define PLAT_GTK 1
  #include <gtk/gtk.h>
  /* #include <glib.h> // usless as GTK depends on GLib and includes it */
  #include <sciwrappers.h>
But all in all, I'm not sure it is an intentional behaviour, I'll let
a Geany developer go deeper in this.

But AFAIR you should use the new geanyplugin.h header in place of all
other Geany header, with which to haven't any problem, then it fixes
the problem for your use.


[1] not sure of the policy of inludes in header in Geany code, way for
Enrico, Nick or Frank.
