Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Rust/Tk: GUI library that seems neat but has only 40 downloads - what's the catch?
1 project | reddit.com/r/rust | 13 Nov 2021
If you want something that is conceptually close to QML but fully typed and in 100% rust, then you might want to look at this.

Recommendations for cross platform UI?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 7 Nov 2021
We did not start on it yet. And this is not a short term goal. If you want, you can track the issues https://github.com/sixtyfpsui/sixtyfps/issues/46 and https://github.com/sixtyfpsui/sixtyfps/issues/47
Will Pop!_OS ever do an officially KDE flavor or will it forever be GNOME-only? Would you like Pop!_OS to do a KDE Flavor? (Poll)

I'm no expert on this, but the best bet is gtk-rs; would be cool to see a native rust GUI library like SixtyFPS be used.
Microsoft's UWP = Unwanted Windows Platform?

>UWP is obsolete, because desktop applications are obsolete.
You have a point that for some applications, mainly the "some textboxes and buttons" variety used in things like data entry are better served by a webapp. As for other things every time I scroll up in a html5 chat application and the fans of my laptop go WHIRR I'm reminded that for anything non trivial you are still better off getting your hands dirty and start using a good GUI framework from the language of your choice.
For a while I thought that WASM will bridge this gap and bring a future of near native performance to webapps then results like the ironically named sixtyfps toolkit having trouble pushing 20fps on my 2 year old flagship phone.
Showing GUIs from Shell Scripts
1 project | reddit.com/r/programming | 12 Oct 2021
Thanks for your comment. Our examples in https://github.com/sixtyfpsui/sixtyfps/tree/master/examples/bash don't have it. We actually hesited having it in the blog post, but we thought it shows how convenient it is to install. But yeah, not something we would want in actual script, thanks for pointing that out. On the other hand, cargo install does the install quite cleanly in the user directory and shouldn't "foul up" your system
SixtyFPS (GUI crate) weekly update for 3rd of October 2021
1 project | reddit.com/r/rust | 6 Oct 2021
Good question. Accessibility remains a todo at this point - https://github.com/sixtyfpsui/sixtyfps/issues/32 . Qt might help with some of the platform abstraction, but work remains to present a sensible application hierarchy to the underlying platform and of course react to input events.

The most promising toolkit for a Rust GUI that I have seen is SixtyFPS.
