A call for blogs about Rust GUI in 2023

This is a call for everyone in the Rust programming language’s community:

Let’s talk about GUI!

GUI in Rust is what you might call a “work in progress”. We are not GUI yet, unfortunately, despite the best efforts of everybody involved.

Still! There has been a lot of progress in the last few years, but discussion about it has been rare and scattered. As the end of the year approaches, I though I could take a page from the Rust blog and send a call for blog posts about Rust GUI.

  • To GUI framework maintainers:
    • What are you working on?
    • How much progress are you making?
    • What do you hope your project will look like at the end of 2023?
  • To GUI users:
    • What are you using?
    • What are your pain points?
    • What do you think is missing from the Rust GUI ecosystem overall?
    • What would you really like to happen next year?

I hope to see a lot of discussions flourish, and maybe people will learn about projects or tools they weren’t aware of.

If there’s enough buy-in, I’ll write a summary of the posts I saw, to be published mid-january.

So get writing, and happy holidays to you all!
