Tauri is a framework for building tiny, blazingly fast binaries for all major desktop platforms. Developers can integrate any front-end framework that compiles to HTML, JS and CSS for building their user interface. The backend of the application is a rust-sourced binary with an API that the front-end can interact with.
The user interface in Tauri apps currently leverages
tao as a window handling library on macOS and Windows, and
gtk on Linux via the Tauri-team incubated and maintained WRY, which creates a unified interface to the system webview (and other goodies like Menu and Taskbar), leveraging WebKit on macOS, WebView2 on Windows and WebKitGTK on Linux.
To learn more about the details of how all of these pieces fit together, please consult this ARCHITECTURE.md document.
If you are interested in making a tauri app, please visit the documentation website. This README is directed towards those who are interested in contributing to the core library. But if you just want a quick overview about where
tauri is at in its development, here's a quick burndown:
|Installer Size Linux||3.1 MB||52.1 MB|
|Memory Consumption Linux||180 MB||462 MB|
|Launch Time Linux||0.39s||0.80s|
|Interface Service Provider||WRY||Chromium|
|Backend Binding||Rust||Node.js (ECMAScript)|
|Underlying Engine||Rust||V8 (C/C++)|
|Custom App Icon||Yes||Yes|
Tauri is a system composed of a number of moving pieces:
Tauri core can be developed on Mac, Linux and Windows, but you are encouraged to use the latest possible operating systems and build tools for your OS.
Before you start working on something, it's best to check if there is an existing issue first. It's also a good idea to stop by the Discord server and confirm with the team if it makes sense or if someone else is already working on it.
Please make sure to read the Contributing Guide before making a pull request.
Thank you to everyone contributing to Tauri!
Test all the things! We have a number of test suites, but are always looking to improve our coverage:
