React NodeGUI

All Contributors

Build performant, native and cross-platform desktop applications with JavaScript + powerful CSS like styling.?

React NodeGUI is powered by React ⚛️ and Qt5 ? which makes it CPU and memory efficient as compared to other chromium based solutions like electron. React NodeGUI is essentially a React renderer for NodeGUI.

How does it look?

  • ? Cross platform. Should work on major Linux flavours, Windows and MacOS
  • ? Low CPU and memory footprint. Current CPU stays at 0% on idle and memory usage is under 20mb for a hello world program.
  • ? Styling with CSS (includes actual cascading). Also has full support for Flexbox layout (thanks to Yoga).
  • ✅ Complete Nodejs api support (Currently runs on Node v12.x - and is easily upgradable). Hence has access to all nodejs compatible npm modules.
  • ? Native widget event listener support. supports all event available from Qt / NodeJs.
  • ? Can be used for Commercial applications.
  • ?️‍♂️ Good Devtools support (hot reload, live reload, debugging etc).
  • ? Good documentation and website.
  • ?‍♂️ Good documentation for contributors.
  • ??‍♀️ Good support for dark mode (Thanks to QT).
  • ?First class Typescript support. (Works on regular JS projects too ?).

Current focus:

  • (Partial support is present) Easily exstensible for creating custom native widgets (like react native).
  • (Partial) Should have a decent list of stylable native widgets.
  • Easy build and packaging process.
