Which GUI framework is mostly used in the software industry for developing standalone desktop apps?

Software Recommendations Asked by Nalith Udugampola on December 7, 2021

As a student I am looking for the mostly used GUI framework in the industry for standalone desktop apps when all the frameworks in all the languages are considered together. Basically I want to know the one with the highest market share.

My requirement is just to start learning it and I don’t want to target specific application types.

One Answer

What platform are you interested in? For cross-platform apps the industry seems to be moving toward Electron apps like Slack or Visual Studio Code is built in - it's a framework for embedding Chromium into a desktop app.

For Windows only, there is Windows Forms or Windows Presentation Foundation.

On Linux, Gtk is popular.

In Python, TkInter is included with the language.
