@bilelmoussaoui has been doing incredible, awesome work not only on gtk-rs but for GNOME in general. We owe him several cool applications, and at least in part the ability to write GTK applications in Rust.
If you can support him, even by just buying him a coffe, please do!
Thanks for all the invisible work behind the scenes Bilal
Another Linux app I find useful is Flatseal.
Allows you to manage permissions for individual apps including network access, geolocation, microphone/camera, and system files and directories. Easy and simple to use. Like on mobile devices.
Did Matthias's talk during the Linux App Summit make you want to try the GTK4 demo? Jordan explains how you can give it a go in just a few steps.
If you’re interested in writing a GTK app or want to contribute, I have one bit of advice I highly recommend: Don’t use Glade. It’s usually wrong, and will make more work for you in the future. Especially if you plan to port to GTK4.
UI files are great, but if you want to use them write and edit the XML by hand. Glade is not your friend.
Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.
If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.
Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?

The end result is that the browser is just there like you’d expect, but it gets updates generally more quickly than a traditional repo system—and directly from upstream. The modern web basically requires a bleeding-edge browser, so this neatly solves that.
I was missing a nice word lookup tool since I switched from macOS to Linux but I've now found it! "Quick Lookup" is simple, pretty and works great! 😍
GtkSourceView5 bindings for Rust in a pretty decent shape.
Another GTK4 port down - this time for Podcasts, the app by @alatiera . This one is probably a better example of a port than the incomplete Social and the tiny Solanum.
