I’m tasked with developing a commercial closed-source application for desktop with GUI. I’m looking for a framework I could use.
Nice to have:
I’ve been working with wxWidgets, but I don’t seem to find many questions on SO, nor plenty of code on GitHub, plus the documentation is confusion for me, and everything seems to have been made more than 5 years ago. I’ve considered using Qt, but my company does not qualify for their small-business plan, so it would end up being too expensive for starters.
The app I’m developing will interact with a lot of C code, and should run "fast" (which makes python a little undesirable), have a GUI and be preferably complied in a stand-alone executable. I cannot create a server-based application to run as a service, I need to deliver to the customer’s PC, which will be used in locations where internet access may be limited or non-existent.
As far as I understand, you want a framework that does it all, that holy grail many are looking for. As I have been working lately with Gtk (more specifically, gtkmm, which is written in C++, in contrast to Gtk, which is in C), I can make a case for it. From what you mentioned, this is what gtkmm covers:
I know it doesn't answer your question, as being closed source was a must, but these are my two cents.
