  • iced

    A cross-platform GUI library for Rust, inspired by Elm

  • PyO3

    Rust bindings for the Python interpreter

  • Personally, I'm sufficiently wedded to not just Qt, but QWidget-based GUIs specifically, that my approach is to build something akin to the official QML/C++ stack using Rust for the backend, PyO3 to make it importable from Python, PyQt or PySide for the frontend, and MyPy and ruff on their strictest settings to get as much static checking of the frontend as possible.

  • dioxus

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

  • Dioxus is the best one that I’ve seen around, but you also can take a look at AreWeGUIYet to learn about the alternatives.

  • tauri

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

  • I used to Electron and have since moved to Tauri. It's very actively maintained, cross-platform, lightweight, and has a lot of freedom. The tooling is fantastic as well! Although it's a lot to learn if you want just a pure Rust-based GUI. If you're willing to put time into learning it and some web front-end stuff, I'd say it's the absolute best solution at the moment in the ecosystem.

  • gtk-rs

    Discontinued Rust bindings for GTK 3

  • I haven't used it yet, but gtk-rs looks pretty good too. I've used GTK in general, just not the Rust bindings so far. The tutorials seem nice and GTK is a good UI toolkit overall.

  • druid

    A data-first Rust-native UI design toolkit. (by linebender)

  • As iced and egui were difficult for me, i started with druid.
