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
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.

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?

The state of Rust GUI libraries
9 projects | dev.to | 17 Aug 2022
FLTK (Fast Light Toolkit) is a lightweight, cross-platform supported toolkit for building GUIs. FLTK is supported on Windows, macOS, and UNIX systems and was originally built for C++. If you use the FLTK toolkit to create a GUI application, the application looks the same on all supported operating systems.
Are there any low-level library options for creating desktop apps?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/csharp | 6 May 2022
There are a lot of options and they're not that hard to find... Qt, wxWidgets, FLTK, IUP come immediately to mind.
Looking for a cross-platform solution to my problem

FLTK. It's a cross-platform C++ GUI toolkit for UNIX®/Linux® (X11), Microsoft® Windows®, and MacOS® X.
Where to start with developing cross platform apps?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp_questions | 12 Dec 2021
There are various choices but the one I would recommend for a simple program is WxWidgets which is a W/M/L kit. Another one is FLTK. Another popular choice that is more complex, but allows you to do more as well, is Qt which has support for Android and iOS.

Longing for Lean GUI Frameworks (C/C++)
6 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp_questions | 19 Aug 2021
I know also FLTK and Azul; further, I've looked at TUIs like ncurses, notcurses, and Turbo Vision.
Is there a way to make tile based graphics in C with a light engine or no engine at all?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/roguelikedev | 18 Aug 2021
I've done this a couple of times. I think FLTK or SDL2 are your best options for lightweight "do it yourself" rendering. I've mostly used the former, but I'm not sure that it's best.
Egui: An easy-to-use immediate mode GUI
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Aug 2021
I've always enjoyed making little apps with Immediate mode GUIs. It's a shame that they aren't as effective as retained GUIs for more complex apps.
When I was still programming in Rust FLTK was the only GUI I used that both worked on my Raspberry Pi 4 and was something I felt like I could grasp. I'm not sure if that is retained or immediate or not. I wish the OS maintainers would all get their act together and create an api that made creating cross platform GUIs easier. You can't blame people for using Electron when you see the state of desktop GUIs
