  • SurveyJS - Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • dioxus

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

  • If you want to write the GUI code in Rust, you'd need something like Dioxus (which uses Tauri under the hood). But note that the Rust GUI ecosystem is still new, so I doubt we have something like Draft.js (a wysiwyg editor component for React). There's a lot of complexity involved in writing a text editor, and I'll suspect you'll have to handle a lot of that yourself.

  • tauri-markdown

    A simple local markdown tool, use Tauri & Vditor & Vue3
