    Join the NodeGUI community on Spectrum

    Build performant, native and cross-platform desktop applications with Vue.🚀

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

    Visit: for docs.


    This project is in active development. It should be okay for smaller projects but anything complex - electron is the way to go for now. 🚧


    • 🧬 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 documentation and website.
    • 🧙‍♂️ Good documentation for contributors.
    • 🦹🏻‍♀️ Good support for dark mode (Thanks to QT).
