I am interested in having a portable GUI which compiles without
problems and can be connected to lua. We don't need too fancy stuff,
our customers are engineers who want to get a job done, so fancye
appearance is not something we are aiming at.
TclTk is nothing we would think about because we already have lua.
Java Swing & LuaJava would be cool, but to get it to work, quite
a lot of binary stuff not in our hands needs to be installed.
I had a look at wxWindows. The Idea of wxWindows is quite good, and
appaerantly, one will be able to get state of the art GUIs from that.
At the other hand, while GTK compiled flawlessly on my Tru64 box,
wxWindows didn't (neither Motif, nor GTK), and I gave up. The amount
of stuff to be compiled still is quite huge, and to keep it backward
compatible and portable is quite an amount of work. GTK only is
restricted to UNIX and we want to be able to port to Windows if
After Martin Doerings posting, I tried FLTK as well and in some sense
it produced the same impression on me as lua did -- C++ (!) code which
appears to be portable (I tried on Tru64, Irix6, Suse Linux) --, small,
pretty fast. May be just the thing we need...
So perhaps it would be cool to have luafltk...
