Pax is a user interface engine for native apps & websites.

Write application logic in Rust while declaring content & behavior in Pax's JSX-inspired user interface description language.

Pax compiles into native desktop/mobile apps and WebAssembly-driven web apps. It's very fast and very lightweight.

What's in this repo?

  • The Pax compiler and an implementation of the Pax user interface description language
  • Native renderers + runtimes for iOS, macOS, and browsers/WebAssembly
  • Language bindings for supported programming languages, currently only Rust
  • Pax's CLI for compiling and managing projects
  • Example projects


Currently Alpha and unstable, under active full-time development. Today, Pax compiles and runs for iOS, macOS, and Web. The Web target is our leading edge of development. Pax’s standard library includes components for drawing, layouts, and form controls.

Take Pax for a spin!
