  • fresh

    The next-gen web framework.

    Deno has also created a Next.js competitor, Fresh. I found it a few weeks ago and am starting to go through the docs, looks like a good overall concept. https://fresh.deno.dev/

  • deno

    A modern runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript.

    ~90MB+ at this stage and do now allow compression without erroring out. Deploying ala Golang is not feasible at that level but could well be down the line if this dev branch is picked up again!

    The exe output grew from from ~50MB to plus ~90MB from 2021 to 2024: https://github.com/denoland/deno/discussions/9811 which mean Deno is worse than Node.js's pkg solution by a decent margin.

  • slint

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

    Currently, we do it by using binaries through napi-rs so we can bring in a window using the platform native API. And then we do some hack to merge the event loops.

    But if Deno supports bringing up a window directly, this means we can just ship wasm instead of native binary for all platform. And also I hope event loop integration will be simplified.

    Although we'd also need more API than just showing a window (mouse and keyboard input, accessibility, popup window, system tray, ...)

  • blitz

    High performance HTML and CSS renderer powered by WGPU (by DioxusLabs)

    Have you talked to the Dioxus people recently?

    They're working on a project called Dioxus Blitz; from what I'm told, they're trying to implement a minimal browser target, that provides some basic DOM-like features and renders with wgpu.

    It's not exactly what you're hoping for, but you might find common ground.

    https://github.com/DioxusLabs/blitz

    (Also, the Linebender project is working on Masonry, with FFI as a medium-term goal.)

  • kview

    A web app for Deno KV

    I've been using it to build a dynamic blog/newsletter. Local DX with https://github.com/kitsonk/kview has been nice.

  • stylo-dioxus

    Discontinued Render HTML and CSS with Servo, Taffy, and Vello

    Our v2 of blitz is using firefox itself to resolve CSS and google's advanced WGPU renderer for high-speed text and vector graphics.

  • deno-webui

    Use any web browser as GUI, with Deno in the backend and HTML5 in the frontend.

    Tuned I am, happy to hear this is getting attention. Improvements in this domain would also enable Deno to be a more serious contender in the App space opened up via https://github.com/webui-dev/deno-webui and others.

  • Windows-Sandbox

    Disposable, secure and lightweight Windows Desktop VM

    Windows has a lot of things in this department. https://github.com/microsoft/Windows-Sandbox-Utilities sounds similar to what you describe, but there are also finer-grained APIs: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthz/app...

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
