Any simple GUI for raspberry?

Thu May 11, 2017 8:42 am

I want to create an application that will open upon booting the raspberry pi B. I just dont know any good GUI's frameworks. Any recommendation for gui's? I dont need it to be pretty, i just need it to be simple. Features i need is to be able to have touch input and full screen capabilities.

Thank you in advance.

Given that this is in the C/C++ forum I guess you should look at

http://glade.gnome.org/
http://www.qtsoftware.com/products/deve ... cb4b20fc19
http://www.wxwidgets.org/

I have a slight preference for QT but it does have restrictive license terms if this is a commercial application.

Qt,you can run it without a desktop environment. C++ or QML as JavaScript like script language that is really easy to learn.

I would go for wxwidgets though it is not 'simple' it looks 'native' on many platforms so you can code on say Windows then either recompile or cross compile for the pi.

now that I finally managed to get it working not just from command line but also with the Geany IDE (which is crucial to me), maybe you'd wish to have a look at gtkIOstream
It looks very handsome IMO at first sight, but admittedly I've done just the first steps:

Do you want the GUI for one program or the OS?
