  • dioxus

    Fullstack GUI library for web, desktop, mobile, and more.

  • Project mention: Dioxus 0.5: Web, Desktop, Mobile Apps in Rust | | 2024-03-28

    We have a web components example here:

    Everything should work like normal except: attributes are not typed, custom event listeners must be implemented with web-sys

  • slint

    Slint is a declarative GUI toolkit to build native user interfaces for Rust, C++, or JavaScript apps.

  • Project mention: Ask HN: Why would you ever use C++ for a new project over Rust? | | 2024-04-02

    Did you get a chance to check

    Disclaimer: I work for Slint

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • floem

    A native Rust UI library with fine-grained reactivity

  • Project mention: Lapce | | 2024-02-18

    Just wanted to stick a link the Floem GUI toolkit mentioned above:

    because IMO it's as interesting as Lapce in it's own right.

  • taffy

    A high performance rust-powered UI layout library

  • Project mention: Show HN: Dropflow, a CSS layout engine for node or <canvas> | | 2024-03-21

    I maintain a standalone web layout engine[0] (currently implementing Flexbox and CSS Grid) which has no scripting support. WPT layout tests using is a major blocker to us running WPT tests against our library. Yoga (used by React Native) is in a similar position.<p>Do you think the WPT would accept pull requests replacing such tests with equivalent tests that don't use <script> (perhaps using a build script to generate multiple tests instead - or simply writing out the tests longhand)?<p>I could run against only the ref-tests, but if I can't get full coverage then the WPT seems to provide little value over our own test suite.<p>[0]: <a href=""></a>

  • moxie

    lightweight platform-agnostic tools for declarative UI

  • Ribir

    Non-intrusive GUI framework for Rust

  • async_ui

    Lifetime-Friendly, Component-Based, Retained-Mode UI Powered by Async Rust

  • Project mention: A Proposal for an asynchronous Rust GUI framework | | 2023-09-03

    I'm very interested in seeing if using the commonly implemented forms of compiler support for async programming can also be well used for GUI programming. One wishawa[0] is also perusing this approach in Rust but I first came upon this idea from the crank-js[1] authors. It wasn't clear to me why that one never went anywhere. Was it failure with the approach or was React just a good solution in the space? I can say this though, there's something strikingly elegant about those initial samples of using JavaScript generators for components.

  • raui

    Rust implementation of Renderer Agnostic User Interface

  • kobold

  • hello_egui

    A collection of useful crates for egui

  • Project mention: Immediate Mode GUI Programming | | 2024-01-15

    I've had to spend a lot of time improving egui and it's ecosystem in the process of building my app but it seems to be worth it.

    If you're not building a graphical app it probably makes more sense to use something like tauri or flutter as the gui to build a cross platform app with rust, at least until it's gui ecosystem matures.
