    Have anyone ever told you about the magical oasis known as svelte? It's not a myth, I've seen it with my own two eyes. The devs all ride unicorns that shit skittles and the rivers flow freely with rum 🦄

    @M1sf3t svelte is web only, no? i'm building a desktop app with C#, my options are basically WPF and Winforms. i'm really considering to learn C++ and jump to wxWidgets tho

    @Kashmir oh there's probably good documentation out there somewhere, just if it's directly tied to any proprietary os then they're most likely charge you out the ass for it.

    I'm afraid I'm going to be "that guy", but... What are the issues you've encountered with WPF exactly?

    I've worked with it for quite some time (for desktop applications) and I'll take it over winforms any day. Sure, MVVM requires a fuckton of setup, but with stuff like Assisticant it's not too bad IMO.

    @HerrNyani It's much easier to make portable apps with WinForms, in WPF you'll need to make sketchy assembly builds to get it working. But i don't like both of them.

    My issues with WPF and Winforms are the same of any GUI, but what makes this two a little worse for me (and i'm talking raw wpf and std winforms) is that customization is a pain (like coloring a combobox), it's not cross platform, and it's much more complex than it needs to be.
