I’ve been playing around with Godot for game development for a while but recently needed to make a small application, and found it extremely pleasant to work with for that purpose. Godot supports networking and file system access, and has rich widget theming. I’d recommend considering it as an option for anyone doing GUI apps.
I was actually thinking the same thing a month or so back, when looking into a replacement framework for an electron app.
Just a note for those not keen to use GDScript: C# is also fully supported as an alternative.
This is a great teaser for Godot! I’ve been interested for a while, I’ll definitely check it out based on this article.
