This library provides a high level wrapper around IUP, a multi-platform toolkit for building graphical user interfaces. See rust-iup-sys for low level bindings.

IUP is a multi-platform toolkit for building graphical user interfaces.

It's purpose is to allow a program to run in different systems without changes - the toolkit provides the application portability. Supported systems include: GTK+, Motif and Windows.

IUP has some advantages over other interface toolkits available:

  • Simplicity: due to the small number of functions and to its attribute mechanism, the learning curve for a new user is often faster.
  • Portability: the same functions are implemented in each one of the platforms, thus assuring the interface system's portability.
  • Customization: the dialog specification language (LED) is a mechanisms in which it is possible to customize an application for a specific user with a simple-syntax text file.
  • Flexibility: its abstract layout mechanism provides flexibility to dialog creation.
  • Extensibility: the programmer can create new interface elements as needed.

The Rust binding provides a way to do things in a more Rustic way but without moving out of IUP base nameclatures and philosophy in such a way that one can program on this binding by reading the original IUP documentation.

See rust-iup-sys for information on installing the IUP system libraries needed to use this library. After you have the IUP system libraries just add this to your Cargo.toml:

git = "https://github.com/dcampbell24/iup-rust"
