LCUI: A small C library for building user interfaces #Programming #OpenSource
LCUI is an MIT licensed small C library for building user interfaces with C, XML and CSS.
Written in C: Suitable for small applications written primarily in C language designed for LCUI, it makes it easier to create interactive UIs.
Cross platform: Support for Windows and Linux, you can write Windows Desktop apps and Universal Windows Platform apps, as well as Linux Desktop apps.
XML + CSS: Includes XML and CSS parsers, you can use XML and CSS to describe interface structure and style.
Web-like development experience: Since the design and implementation of LCUI’s functions, including layout, CSS, and renderer, are mostly referenced from MDN documents and some popular web front-end development libraries, its development experience and interface effects will have some similarities to web pages. If you already have experience writing web pages with HTML and CSS, it will be easier to get started.
Flexible: Support for adapting the interface to screens of different pixel densities by setting global scaling. Support for using screen density related sp and dp units to describe position and size of the elements.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
