            I'm using it in a desktop application. Its using rather low-level C. I would wish there were more libraries like this
            • Small
            • Powerful

              So are you using it as some type of configuration portal for the application or as the main UI of the application? Just curious.

                    Did they apply?

                    Here is a list of what is currently supported:
