Yes, there are at least 2 approaches:

- embed the IME in your application, like GNOME/Mutter seems to be doing (I'm not super acquainted with that)
- use the text-input and related protocols. They are still far from perfect or complete, but they have some momentum. (also see the countless issues and merge requests in the same repo).
