wxWidgets - Cross-Platform GUI Library


Not using C++? Get wxWidgets from the wxPython, wxPerl, or wx.NET download sites.

When installing wxWidgets on Windows or OS X, we always recommend building the library from source yourself, and only provide the source package for most platforms. On some platforms, we have provided a few pre-built binaries for convenience, but wxWidgets supports so many compilers on so many platforms, that we can't provide binaries for all of them. On Linux, we recommend using the official wxGTK packages provided by each distribution, but newer packages are available below.
