Vue NodeGui

All Contributors

Join the NodeGUI community on Spectrum

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

Vue NodeGUI is powered by Vue 🌈 and Qt5 πŸ’š 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
  • πŸ“‰ Low CPU and memory footprint. Current CPU stays at 0% on idle and memory usage is under 20mb for a hello world program.
  • πŸ’… Styling with CSS (includes actual cascading). Also has full support for Flexbox layout (thanks to Yoga).
  • βœ… Complete Nodejs api support (Currently runs on Node v12.x - and is easily upgradable). Hence has access to all nodejs compatible npm modules.
