  • sixtyfps

    SixtyFPS is a toolkit to efficiently develop fluid graphical user interfaces for any display: embedded devices and desktop applications. We support multiple programming languages, such as Rust, C++ or JavaScript.

    I'm no expert on this, but the best bet is gtk-rs; would be cool to see a native rust GUI library like SixtyFPS be used.

  • kwinft

    Interesting. If you don't mind, I'm working on KWinFT, originally forked from KWin, and now in the process of splitting out reusable libraries for compositor creation. My goal is to provide desktop-agnostic template libraries, so might be a good fit for you.

  • smithay

    A smithy for rusty wayland compositors

    There's also Smithay (https://github.com/Smithay/smithay) 👀

  • wayfire

    A modular and extensible wayland compositor

    Have you looked at Wayfire? It's like Compiz for Wayland, modular and extensible. I think this would be awesome for letting people choose how their desktop looks like, without any big compromises. I don't know how easy would it be to make plugins with Rust, though.
