  • sycamore

    A reactive library for creating web apps in Rust and WebAssembly

    I suppose the closest you can get to not writing css is to pick a library like tailwind. This way, you're mostly just fiddling with the class property on your DOM elements. My old workmate made https://github.com/sycamore-rs/sycamore/blob/master/examples/page-visit-counter-tailwindcss/src/main.rs if you want to see what that looks like (ignoring the indentation for now).

  • RG3D

    3D and 2D game engine written in Rust [Moved to: https://github.com/FyroxEngine/Fyrox]

    Maybe bevy plus egui? I have never used wasm or bevy though. rg3d apparently supports wasm, too, and includes its own GUI lib (but it's hard to customize the rg3d gui, as far as I can tell).

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • yew

    Rust / Wasm framework for building client web apps

    I'd recommend taking a look at Yew, it has react like functional components which I've used in one of my pet projects. But keep in mind that it still requires some quirk and advance knowledge of javascript for things which can't be handled by WASM.
