wxWidgets is great - i'm so exited about it. I want to thank everyone who develops it right now, and i respect everyone who supports it. But there are some reasons OTHER people prefer Qt instead.
I should say it's improtant to support wxFormBuilder, and there's plenty of reasons why. I personally find it rather conveniently, not extremely neccessarry, but it has a role when speak about design - most of it shouldn't require C++ at all. So, it would be great to improve these things:
- More activity in developing wxFormBuilder, and including it in standart wxWidgets source
Simple - just include it in your Donwloads! Most people that start with wx don't even notice that it has form builder. You should include it, not only - you should remark, that wx has graphic Designer application. Having such a thing is giving you an advantage, so, it's neccessarry to develop it's popularity. It will be extremely usefull to imrpove wxFormBuilder to something like QtDesigner. This is very important, then it brings to wx cool design features, like in Point of Sale, or Qt.
- Theme changing for wxFormBuilder
90% of people prefer using dark theme. So, it's logical to add theme support to the form builder. It will help work efficiently at night. Also, apps that use dark theme(especially redactors) have much better look in dark. I don't say it's always so, but mostly dark theme looks pretty nice. Not only dark! You could just make it user-editable! And then we'll figure out what theme we prefer Maybe it's also possible to import/export themes to share them with the communtiy. That would be cool!
- Drag-And-Drop with widgets
It's not so neccessarry, but this is the part of the convenience. It seems more natively - to drag and drop widgets where they should be, even though their positions are set manually.
- YouTube, Patreon, other social stuff...
To create YouTube channel(if it's possible). With tutorials, news, community Q&A, blogs... YouTube is great for involving new people! And for every open-source project, it's neccessarry to have big community. Think of Blender 3D - it's community is giant! It's because of forums, blogs, news, and active developers. You have active developers - why don't you go further? Blender has money to evolve, and upgrade itself, and so you will, if you'll have big community.
- Native form for every operating system
I'm about Windows. On every Windows version, form builder displays a form from Windows XP when designing. This is quite disappointing for me. I don't know, maybe it's not so important for, other people, but if it's not hard to do, then it would be great to add support of native operation system forms to it. I mean, form on Windows 10 while working in form builder looks like form on Windows 10, not like Windows XP.
