    :zap: Native, high-performance, cross-platform desktop apps - built with Reason!

    OCaml has actually put some decent effort into good GUI libraries, such as

  • egui

    egui: an easy-to-use immediate mode GUI in Rust that runs on both web and native

    If you don’t mind just drawing into a rectangle (without native UI components), more options open up. There’s plenty of Rust libraries for just drawing into a buffer. Like, which does provide UI components, just not native one.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • tauri

    Build smaller, faster, and more secure desktop applications with a web frontend.

    Native GUI programming in Rust seems immature from last I checked, but maybe the situation is better than I remember. There’s Tauri. Unfortunately it’s still kinda web-based like Electron, but an improvement still. It uses native webviews and almost everything will be running in Rust, so it may be decently efficient.
