New Svelte NodeGui Allows Creating Native Desktop Applications with Qt and Svelte. Jamie Birch recently announced Svelte NodeGui, a framework for developing desktop applications on Windows, Linux, and MacOS. A lighter alternative to Electron, Svelte NodeGui lets developers write their applications with the Svelte front-end framework and compiler.
Jamie Birch recently announced Svelte NodeGui, a framework for developing desktop applications on Windows, Linux, and MacOS. A lighter alternative to Electron, Svelte NodeGui lets developers write their applications with the Svelte front-end framework and compiler, the Qt widget toolkit, and a subset of HTML and CSS.
Svelte NodeGui documentation presented the rationale and benefits behind the new framework as follows:
Some developers have reported the size of a basic hello world Electron application to be as high as 115 MB or 275 MB. Svelte NodeGui manages to compile smaller executables with a better memory consumption by not shipping the Chromium web browser together with the web application.
Conversely, Svelte NodeGui applications cannot leverage browser APIs nor the full extent of HTML and CSS. A Svelte NodeGui app is a Node.js app whose user interface is made of Qt widgets (e.g.,
QCheckBox) that can be styled with the subset of CSS supported by Qt’s stylesheet syntax and are laid out with Flexbox — a web browser’s one-dimensional layout method. Qt widgets’ surface area may be lower than that of HTML native elements, which effectively limits developers to using a Qt-supported subset of HTML. Svelte NodeGui ships with 13 tags or UI components, including buttons, image tags, editable text areas, progress bars, or native OS windows.
