Top 9 Rust Desktop Projects

  • Azul

    Desktop GUI Framework

    Project mention: Ladybird: A new cross-platform browser project | | 2022-09-12

    Components of Servo were integrated just fine into Firefox. WebRender is the big one, and iirc many smaller ones too (the css parser maybe? memory hazy)

    There's also non-web-related software that uses WebRender, such as Azul.

    Maybe there aren't integration points at the layer of the stack you were hoping for, but that doesn't mean the entire project is "bullshit"

  • dioxus

    Friendly React-like GUI library for desktop, web, mobile, and more.

    Project mention: Rust GUI, which one to choose? | | 2022-09-22

    I am a big fan of DIoxus, React-like and built on Tauri and Wry. With a promise of different future backends, such as native, tui, etc. I am currently wrapping my head around state management, but I really enjoy the API. They seem to be making a lot of smart decisions.
