Molybden 1.0.0 Public Preview

We are thrilled to announce the public preview of Molybden!

What’s Molybden

Molybden is an SDK for building cross-platform C++ desktop apps with HTML/CSS/JavaScript user interface. It provides Command Line Interface (CLI) and a set of tools for generating projects, building, branding, packaging, and distributing your apps.

Molybden CLI generates a CMake project you can open in your favorite C++ IDE such as CLion, MS Visual Studio, or Qt Creator. You can develop, debug, and run your desktop app right from your IDE or using the Molybden CLI.

Use the power of the rich C++ ecosystem with a wide range of libraries, frameworks, and tools for building performant desktop apps. Work with the operating system low-level native APIs and access hardware.

To build modern UI of your application you can use a wide range of web developer tools, frameworks such as React, Vue, Angular, ready-to-use UI components for building modern, cross-platform, cost-effective, rich and interactive user interfaces. Debug JavaScript and modify DOM/CSS with the built-in Chromium DevTools.

With a rich Molybden API you can invoke C++ code from JavaScript and vice versa with automatic type conversion, high performance, and optimal memory usage.

Get access the native operating system APIs and hardware right from your JavaScript code!
