React NodeGui

Join the NodeGUI community on Spectrum All Contributors

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

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.

Visit: https://react.nodegui.org 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. 🚧
