    Cross platform GUI toolkit in Go inspired by Material Design

    I can recommend using Fyne ( as it is easy to learn, cross-platform and natively compiled. You would also then write you application using the Go language. It works on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, macOS and Windows on desktop as well as Android and iOS on mobile.
