    Safe interop between Rust and C++

    Sorry, I cant really give too much advice here. You may be interested in the cxx library for automatic binding generation between rust c++ here

    Slint 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. [Moved to:]

    There is already a project to make a Qt like GUI toolkit in Rust: It is really similar to Qt

  • 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.

  • accesskit

    UI accessibility infrastructure across platforms and programming languages

    Fortunately, it seems like new GUI toolkits will have an easier time of integrating with accessibility APIs in the near future thanks to AccessKit. It's Windows-only for now, but support for other platforms is planned.

  • dioxus

    Friendly React-like crossplatform app development for desktop, web, mobile, and more.

    Might be worth writing a renderer for Dixous which was just released?
