I am trying to build a website showing many kinds of figures, which are highly interactive with user. For example, when someone hover, click or drag the figure, the server do some calulations and return information to the website.
I found there are many GUI crates disigned specifically to do this kine of job, such as egui, iced, tauri, etc. I am trying to figure out which one should I choose based on the following considerations:
Thanks for your recommendation.
I used to work on kinds of data with using package like pytorch, xgboost etc, and totally new to frontend. Besides I found the frontend work is hard for me and I don't need to know frontend work that deeply. So I thought I shoud spend as less time on frontend programming as possible, and focus on building interactive plotting.
"easy" is individual specific. for example, if you are familiar with immediate mode ui, egui is easy. if you are familiar with the web stuff, tauri should be easy.
I think you really mean "well-supported" and "well-maintained". choose library based on popularity might not suit your use case.
I think other than libraries that are bindings to system APIs (like Qt, wxWidget, Win32, etc), most rust GUI libraries renders the UI elements themselves, since rust can be compiled to wasm, most of them are web capable. the ones you mentioned, egui, iced, tauri, as far as I know, all support web. some other examples including: dioxus, druid, slint
you may also check out web only libraries/frameworks like leptos, yew, etc.
I don't know about figures, but I had heard about plotly-rs, if you are targeting web, it might worth checking out.
