I didn't bash Java/Kotlin. In fact, I have written few android apps in Kotlin, Java and I also have fiddled with Jetpack compose, JNI and NDK (I have also played with mpv's Opengl/Vulkan's rendering on Android if that matters to you). I don't want to share the projects of mine because i don't want to reveal my identity.
I know that tailscale's android application is written in it but i don't think gioui is great for android apps.
> Tell me you've never done any Android development, without telling me...All this Java/Kotlin bashing is getting really old, especially for a forum like this one.
Ok, this one hurts. Why are you attacking me instead of defending your stance. All are allowed to have opinions and I am allowed to have one(It's sad to explain this to someone on forum like this one). I dream of Linux-desktop kinda situation where you can program in any language you want, where you are not hindered by any platform/framework, where you have complete freedom and where you don't want to be bothered/(vendor locked-in) by Bigcorps(looking at you Google services framework).
> write GUIs in a non-GC language like Rust which _has_ to run on what's essentially a Java VM (ART).
Haha, non-GC languages power the GUIs on Android fyi. Jetpack compose is powered by Skia. Chromium is powered by Skia. Skia is C++.

Build smaller, faster, and more secure desktop applications with a web frontend.
Isn't this what Tauri wants to achieve? At least it's on the roadmap I mean.
Does anyone have any experience creating production apps with Tauri? Seems like a sane alternative to Electron, especially if they can target all major platforms and keep the promise of smaller footprints.
The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
Rust bindings to the Android NDK (by rust-mobile)
You can already. The ndk allows any language to be compiled to android. For rust see
Which has the tools to do this.
Build cross-platform Native Progressive Web Apps for iOS, Android, and the Web ⚡️
The traditional alternative to Electon on mobile platforms is Capacitor (which uses the system webview):

USB armory - The open source compact secure computer
> Since 80s everybody designs systems on top of C.
More like since the 1990's, and mostly thanks to the GNU Manifesto and FOSS uptake that took the steam out of C++ adoption being pushed by Apple, IBM and Microsoft.
There is firmware in production written in Go,
