  • The Decline and Fall of Java on the Desktop Part 1 (1999-2005)
    > Java Swing still lets you make native-looking-and-feeling apps (with some care). I don't know of any new GUI frameworks that let you do the same. That's the whole raison d'être of the (C++) wxWidgets toolkit. [0] It fully commits to using native GUI widgets, rather than impersonating them. (That is, it wraps various other toolkits.) As others have pointed out, the other major cross-platform toolkits (Qt, GTK)... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • Why is Audacity not up to date in Arch repo?
    That all being said: We are now all waiting on wxwidgets to release their next stable version so that we can upgrade. It makes no sense to use an unstable version of that upstream, as in its development releases it literally breaks on every patch level release. It also makes no sense to start packaging a custom version of wxgtk just for audacity (the overhead required is just not worth it). - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Ask HN: Is there any cross platform non native GUI written in C that looks good?
    Looking good is very subjective of course… did you take a look at wxWidgets? https://wxwidgets.org/. - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • Is it possible to have a Rust framework that compiles to a native GUI
    It's possible. That's what wxWidgets does in C++ ...but, as others have said, it's a lot of work to make a GUI toolkit, abstraction or not. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
