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)

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.

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?

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?

Is it worth writing a GUI toolkit in Rust?

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

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

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.

QMetaObject crate for Rust
Made my first app in Rust! A notification daemon for Linux :)

qmetaobject is probably the most mature Qt Rust binding at the moment. It uses the cpp crate to embed C++ inline in Rust to create its bindings. There are some people using it and it does get some maintenance, but it's not under active development since the original author is now working on Slint.

The bindings currently use the git version of qttypes since I had to merge some upstream changes that are needed for these bindings. So they are not ready for prime time just yet.
CXX-Qt: safe Rust bindings for Qt
- It does support plugins: https://github.com/woboq/qmetaobject-rs/tree/master/examples...
I wonder what problems from the list apply to another existing and more mature solution: https://github.com/woboq/qmetaobject-rs/
There are a bunch of bindings with different language, but even the ones that are officially supported like PySide will still be second class citizen and awkward to use.
Automated binding generation will never give you idiomatic API in whatever language. And if you want an idiomatic library that wraps Qt, it's going to take a huge amount of work.
Which is why I think restricting to QML makes sense because that's a much smaller API surface. That was the ambition behind my previous crate that exposes QML to rust: https://github.com/woboq/qmetaobject-rs/
But now I've moved on to another GUI project: Slint https://github.com/slint-ui/slint

On the other hand, there isn't a need to have bindings for all of Qt, only enough of Qt to build a GUI. Qt provides lots and lots of libraries, many of which are no needed for building GUIs and could be provided by libraries in other languages. This is the approach the qmetaobject Rust library takes.
Do you think the Rust is production ready for GUI in 2021?
