GLUI

Ease of Use
Extensibility
Performance
Security
Pros:
  • Framebuffer FTW
  • Window events rigged
Cons:
  • Broken on your machine

Description

The GLUI is a research pattern that we will use internally to test approaches using a GLUTIN window. We’re not sure yet if it will make the final cut as a bona fide alternative to Webview, although early tests with transparent and multiwindow are exciting.

Configuration

Here's what you need to add to your tauri.conf.json file:

"tauri": {
  "embeddedServer": {
    "active": false               // do not use a localhost server
  },
  "whitelist": {                  // all API endpoints are default false
    "all": false,                 // disable the api
  },
  "window": {                     // not yet normative
    "glutin": true,
    "webview": false
  }
}
