Use keyframes to animate your user interface. Nearly any value in your UI can be animated by dragging them to the animation panel. Animations have a negligible impact on performance, even when animating complex layouts.
Watch Changes Update Live
Embed uiink into your application and watch your changes update live. Connections can be to applications running locally or over the network.
Quill has a designer friendly node system for working with your UI's data. Your UI interacts with uiink using a data-only API. This has many benefits during development and when shipping your application. Read more about stateless UI.
UTF-8 and Localization Support
Translate your UI into multiple languages using a straightforward workflow. Details and examples can be found in the uiink localization documentation.
uiink integrates with industry standard font rendering and layout engines to give you all the power and flexibility you need.
Spend less time optimizing
You would be hard pressed to create a UI in Quill that might cause performance issues later down the line.
uiink doesn't use a garbage collector or scripting1. It's optimized to run your UI using minimal system resources, even on low end mobile platforms.
One of uiink's design philosophies is to run fast without any caching. The caching that does happen under the hood is just icing on the cake. What this means in practice is that you can create without worry about performance.
And So Much More...
We pack a lot of power into a very small package. Get in touch today to see if uiink is the solution that works for you. Or browse the documentation and get a better idea of all the features available to you.
uiink gives you enough flexibility to usually do what you want without any scripting. However, a scripting node allows you to embed Lua within your UI. In which case the runtime will be executing scripts and have a garbage collector. This is an optional feature that can be completely disabled. ↩
