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.
Will Qt support the Rust language by default? (just curiosity)
2 projects | reddit.com/r/QtFramework | 6 Feb 2022
As an anecdote, the three top contributors to sixtyfps are ex-Qt people. I think it is not anecdotal that there is at least some degree of overlap and competition between Rust and C++, and that this is a market that surely The Qt Company is watching.
BeeWare – write Python, run as native everywhere
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 6 Feb 2022
SixtyFPS (https://sixtyfps.io/) is in progress for Rust, but it is still early days. It also does not technically use a native toolkit (it uses Qt), but I believe that might be on roadmap. For traditional GUI apps, I think the lack of a table or tree widget is the most limiting for the time being. They have stated they intend to remedy that.
What are the best GUI libraries for a potentially “serious”/large project?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 3 Feb 2022
The most promising GUI hasn't been posted here, SixtyFPS. It's in it's early stages and not FOSS, but it's built by some ex-QT cats and has a lot of potential.
Is there a reliable and documented GUI library out there?

People have been recommending https://sixtyfps.io/ to me.
Is it worth writing a GUI toolkit in Rust?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 7 Jan 2022
There is already a project to make a Qt like GUI toolkit in Rust: https://sixtyfps.io/ It is really similar to Qt https://sixtyfps.io/releases/0.1.5/docs/rust/sixtyfps/index.html
Tauri – Electron alternative written in Rust

People are doing that too. https://sixtyfps.io/ is basically a Qt clone in Rust, actually developed by previous Qt developers.

spdlog, a pretty useful and more and more commonly used logging library for C++.\ SixtyFPS, an emerging GUI library for Rust, but you can use it in multiple languages. It uses OpenGL or Qt currently as backend (well, it's a new library and they wanted two from the get-go to make sure their abstractions are done right/well enough). They started a company this year for it too.
Why I choose Electron even when I wanted to use QT
3 projects | reddit.com/r/QtFramework | 27 Dec 2021
Just so some are not aware, there's a new project called sixtyfps by some people who were in the Qt world for long. I didn't take a deep dive into it but it looks promising.
State of Rust GUI in 2021?

https://sixtyfps.io/ have a toolkit with Rust with free and paid offerings. I haven't used it, but might be worth the look.10 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 15 Dec 2021
Which of the many GUI frameworks to use?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 22 Aug 2022
I've looked at a good portion of them over at https://areweguiyet.com in the hopes of making some kind of GUI project in Rust that would have a decent look and feel. Well, I've found that none of them sell themselves well on looks unless they are based on some kind of web technology. I mean seriously, have you looked at Druid's Readme? It's horrible. Most of them don't even dare mentioning animations and easing, something I find to be very important for UX.
The state of Rust GUI libraries

There are many other GUI libraries in the Rust ecosystem, and you can find a comprehensive list on Are We GUI Yet and LibHunt.

Binary distribution with statically linked C-dependencies

Firstly, why do you use libX11 directly? Are aware that most GNU/Linux distro are moving to Wayland? There's https://lib.rs/winit and other crates which abstract over display server and even operating system. What about using gtk-rs or any other GUI library out there? There are many of them for Rust. https://areweguiyet.com

Bevy game engine v0.6.0 released
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 8 Jan 2022
I noticed the short section on changes to Bevy's UI. I expect both GPU rendering and ECS will be important capabilities to consider for new GUI systems, and Bevy does both well. How do you imagine Bevy fitting into the budding Rust GUI story a la https://areweguiyet.com ? An entrant itself? The backend for one? Would you consider pure GUI applications an important use-case for Bevy now, or perhaps some time in the future?
