This crate implements the core Alchemy application, which is what users ultimately import. Applications are a singleton; some might not like this, but it enables a design pattern that meshes a bit better with existing GUI framework systems and patterns.
The general pattern for developing with Alchemy is as follows:
[Alchemy API] -> [Inner Mutability] -> [Platform Bridge (implemented in other crates)] | | |- [Delegate]
The delegate pattern is cribbed from AppKit/UIKit, where it tends to work quite nicely as a way to respond to system level events.

Alchemy is a Rust GUI framework that implements the React Component lifecycle on top of a delegate system inspired by those found in AppKit/UIKit. It's backed by native widgets per-platform, but doesn't bind you to any one design style or visual appearance.
CSS support (no cascading) provides a familiar syntax for developers who tend to work on UI/UX projects, and the Component lifecycle is familiar enough to anyone who's touched React.
