So, I think I understand how modern GL code is supposed to be written and I want to make sure I'm right.
I am supposed to manage my own matrix/matrices instead of using glXXX (glPush/PopMatrix, glTranslate, glScale, etc.).
Then, I am supposed to use a shader that takes that matrix (and whatever else is needed) to do the rendering.

Am I right so far?

So if I have to manage matrices myself, can I just write my own implementation of glPushMatrix, glPopMatrix, glTranslate, etc. myself? Is this a good idea?

Yes, though this has been the case for many years w/ GL at this point. You manage your own matrix stack as necessary.

Also check out JOML for doing the maths. Don't use it myself but seems to be pretty popular and certainly has all the features you'll be needing. I believe it even has it's own matrix stack implementation.

Big +1 for JOML. They have a perfect MatrixStackf class which has all the functions of the old OpenGL matrix stack, plus much more. It's all lightning fast too. Seriously, check that shit out.
