A Julia library comparable to pysimplegui (simple graphical user interface)


I wonder if a Julia library comparable to pysimplegui exists.
I’m looking for a “pure” Julia solution… ie not using PyCall.

Kind regards

PS : repository https://github.com/PySimpleGUI/PySimpleGUI

What features are you looking for that aren’t present in e.g. Gtk.jl?

Same code to use several backends… tkinter, Qt, wxWidgets, Browser UI.
Quite simple API but that’s a personal taste not a feature

I’m quite confident such a thing doesn’t exist. If you’re interested in writing one yourself, wrapping IUP wouldn’t be a bad place to start.

I’d also encourage you to think carefully about whether you really need the code to use multiple GUI platforms; Gtk is already natively multi-platform, and looking at the code example on the front page of PySimpleGUI, writing simple GUIs with Gtk.jl doesn’t seem any more complex.

There’s https://github.com/joa-quim/IUP.jl, but it seems to be out of date.

I recommend you to check ClmGui, I personally have not used it, but it seems very nice.


Yes, the lack of original good enough documentation made me give up. Also, as already mentioned in other thread on this, I had put my hopes in Libui but this (the Libui C library) also has been stalled for long, though seems to show signs of waking up (by users pressure).
