MauiKit — UI Framework

A free and modular front-end framework for developing user experiences.

MauiKit is a set of templated controls and tools based on QQC2 initially using Kirigami shared among the Maui set of applications. MauiKit helps to quickly build UIs that follow the Maui HIG and bring ready-to-go tools for different platforms, such as Android and Linux.

Maui stands for Multi-Adaptable User Interface and allows any Maui app to run on various platforms + devices, like Linux Desktop and Phones, Android, or Windows.

Nitrux Latinoamericana S.C. develops it with and caffeine.

Components ready to use on Linux, Android, Windows, Mac OS, and iOS.

Powered by FOSS

MauiKit works best when using the KDE frameworks and Qt Quick Controls 2.

Create amazing applications for everyone
