Learn and prototype with GNOME technologies
Workbench lets you experiment with GNOME technologies, no matter if tinkering for the first time or building and testing a GTK user interface.
Among other things, Workbench comes with
- Live GTK/CSS preview
- Library of 100+ examples
- Declarative user interface syntax
- Autosave, sessions and projects
- Code linter and formatter
- Offline documentation
- Terminal output
- 1000+ icons
ℹ️ Workbench is made possible by Flatpak. Only Flathub Workbench is supported.

Turn a prototype made in Workbench into an application
Use GNOME Builder to start a new project using the appropriate GNOME Application template and copy paste your Workbench code.
Workbench is made of many components, thank you

GSoC coding period started on Monday, so this is a good time to blog about what I’ve started working on and what’s my milestone to finish the project. First off, I’ve created a simple mockup using Sonny Piers’ amazing Workbench app. This is the first step in knowing how we want the UI to look like, at least in the first iteration.
Workbench has been great! It used to be hard to mess around with GTK but Workbench helps me to learn GTK.
Gone too wild playing with Workbench and Blueprint.
as someone who is learning GTK, I can confirm that Workbench is definitely a must have for me!
I'm really new to development and workbench its being a fantastic help not just to code itself, but to understand the gtk logic.
Installed this (again) a short while ago this is for sure the most fun I've had with a development tool
