  • slint

    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.

    We are having a server using the Language Server Protocol (LSP) which many editor, including Emacs, should support. I'm not a Emacs user myself, but if anyone wants to try and contribute instructions on , they're very welcome. Feel free to submit bug reports if something doesn't work alright with emacs.

  • webview

    Tiny cross-platform webview library for C/C++/Golang. Uses WebKit (Gtk/Cocoa) and Edge (Windows)

    unfortunately there is no easy way to get a window handle to a drawing area in the way slint is build. It would be fairly easy to use it with libs that can render into those. Besides video libs like libmpv/libvlc (that can render into opengl contexts i think, but i am unsure if this is very beneficial if you copy things around) you could "easily" embed website via e.g webview which works quite well in fltk-rs. I wonder how long it would take slint to be able to do this because, for whatever reason, i often need to do this in my gui projects (video + websites)

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • tauri

    Build smaller, faster, and more secure desktop applications with a web frontend.

    If using webview, Tauri is easily the best web/JS and Rust implementation I’ve used.
