Projects / Faith


Faith is a cross-platform C++ graphical application toolkit. It runs natively on Linux/Unix (Xlib) and Windows. It has an API strongly inspired by Qt's and has many features that are expected from a modern toolkit, including a variety of common "widgets", an aesthetically pleasing appearance, and the many critical non-portable components such as anti-aliasing and sockets.
