    This is really cool! I love the JSX-like approach to UI and it's a shame it's not so common on desktop. https://github.com/can-lehmann/owlkettle is the only thing I find comparable.

    Although for a GUI (if I even made one, rather than just a fixed/hardcoded setup) I'd probably use Owlkettle(though there are some things I don't like about it, see closed issue 16).

    There's also Owlkettle that seems a bit easier/cleaner IMO, though when I tried it I had some issues (clunky container workflow, wanting better scaling) and would prefer something similar using Qt.
