NOTE : This is pre-alpha software.
V UI is a cross-platform UI toolkit written in the V programming language for Windows, macOS, Linux, and soon Android, iOS and the web (JS/WASM). V UI uses native widgets on Windows and macOS, on all other platforms the widgets are drawn by V UI. Right now only the non-native widgets are available.
This is a very early version of the library, lots of features are missing (layouts, certain widgets, etc), lots of things will change.
There will be a declarative version of the API with hot reloading, similar to SwiftUI and Flutter.
On Linux, V UI will be a full-featured lightweight alternative to GTK and Qt.
Binaries built with V UI will have no dependencies.
To develop V UI apps, you need to install V,
glfw dependency will soon be removed.
macOS: brew install glfw freetype Debian/Ubuntu: sudo apt install libglfw3 libglfw3-dev libfreetype6-dev Arch/Manjaro: sudo pacman -S glfw-x11 freetype2 Fedora: sudo dnf install glfw glfw-devel freetype-devel Windows: git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/ubawurinna/freetype-windows-binaries [path to v repo]/thirdparty/freetype/
V UI is licensed under GPL3. A commercial license will be available. Open-source projects will have access to the commercial license for free. Every single feature will be open-sourced right away and available under both licenses. At some point in the future the library will be relicensed under MIT.
