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?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 25 Jan 2022
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
17 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Jan 2022
People are doing that too. https://sixtyfps.io/ is basically a Qt clone in Rust, actually developed by previous Qt developers.
I'm giving out microgrants to open source projects for the third year in a row! Brag about your projects here so I can see them, big or small!

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?

CLIs and TUIs packages

Cursive should let you easily build a layout with a menu and status bars (and mouse works).
Dwarf Fortress – randomly generated, persistent fantasy world
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Nov 2022
The thing that gets me about Dwarf Fortress is that it's a 64-bit text-mode game.
As a grey-haired developer who got excited about "DOS Extenders" that allowed 32-bit mode, seeing a text-mode game written as a native 64-bit application is bizarrely anachronistic.
I get a similar feeling from text-mode GUI frameworks for Rust, which allow multi-threading and 64-bit but are essentially clones of Borland Turbo Vision, where you had to be mindful to keep lists smaller than 64KB: https://github.com/gyscos/cursive
How to maintain app state in an app using Cursive

Maybe this helps?2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 9 Jul 2022
This allows you to pass around data through the Cursive object. See a simple example here.
Rust TUI libraries

Clock King - a TUI program for timekeeping
3 projects | reddit.com/r/commandline | 21 May 2022
As for the classic UI look, I'm a fan as well. This is one of the reasons I picked Cursive, the look is very much due to their default styling.
Grab raw keyboard inputs
3 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 19 May 2022
If you don't want to go that drastic, I suggest looking at Cursive's list of supported backends for a comparison of each one's pros and cons.
Building a Transport Protocol on ARP
2 projects | dev.to | 29 Mar 2022
Using Cursive, I built a terminal user interface and implemented a small chat app over ARP. On the second day that I was sick, I did some polishing and implemented a presence system for requesting who's online and gratuitously broadcasting when you connect or disconnect. This is, in an ironic fashion, close to ARP itself— one could run ARP on top of ARP for some true ARPception!
TUI to manage bookmarks
2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 2 Jan 2022
rbmenu-tui is a TUI for managing bookmarks. Orginally I wrote rbmenu. It is a pure CLI project. Recently, I refactored rbmenu and wrote a TUI for it using cursive.
