  • cxx

    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

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

  • 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

    Fullstack GUI library for desktop, web, mobile, and more.

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

  • InfluxDB
