    languages: C++..and yeah, pretty much everything else ;) Website mentions "Python, Perl, Ruby and many other languages"
  • How do you create a cross-platform GUI without using Electron?

    It's open source, the code has always felt reasonably clean to me, and it gives your apps native look and feel.

    Hi, for making wizards WxWidgets has a great sample available https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/tree/master/samples/wizard. That looks like exactly what you need.

  • Is there a GUI creation framework for C++ that's even remotely as easy to use as C#
    reddit.com/r/cpp | 2021-05-01
    Wx widgets is easy to use: https://www.wxwidgets.org
  • Gui for c++
    There are lots of GUI frameworks for C++. If you're looking for a cross-platform one that will hit all of the major OSes, you can try Qt or wxWidgets. There are many many others, but those two generally get a lot of press.
  • New 3.1.5 release of wxWidgets, free and open source library for creating portable native GUI applications, adding wxWebRequest (HTTPS and HTTP/2 support) and about a thousand and a half other changes, is now available.

    Really difficult to know what do you mean, i.e. what kind of information was it missing? FWIW any concrete suggestions for docs improvements are very welcome as reports on https://trac.wxwidgets.org/newticket and PRs to the docs on https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/pulls are even more so.
  • Wxwidgets 3.1.5 Released
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-14
    FWIW updating from 3.1.4 to 3.1.5 (and then to 3.2.0) should be pretty seamless.

    The documentation does need work, but it's hard to find people volunteering to do it (although a few people do contribute to the docs too and this is something that is always very much appreciated). Any concrete suggestions for improvements are welcome as reports on https://trac.wxwidgets.org/newticket and, as you might have already realized by now, PRs to the docs on https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/pulls are even more so.

    Finally, asking questions (on the forum, users mailing list or SO) seems to work pretty well for most people.

  • Ask HN: Best stack for cross-platform desktop app?
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-14
    WxWidgets[0] and Ultimate++[1] are the two. Poco[2] libs are available as well. And for Web frontend there is Wt[3]
