React NodeGUI

Join the NodeGUI community on Spectrum 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.

Features

  • 🧬 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 (supports react-devtools, node debugger).
  • 📚 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:

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