Looks like that most ideas about GUI library are spinning around spirit-like
interface. What about simple resource files ? XML? Despite this approach
is old enough, it has a lot of advantages :
1. Resouce files can be easily edited by hand, contrary to "inline"
2. GUI-building code for complicated UI will be poor for compiler perfomance
and in most cases code size.
As example you can look at spirit c++ parser ...
3. It is possible to create some kind of resource-editor which can
dramatically increase development time.
BTW, there were some talks about second review of declined serialization
which can be used for resource files ... is this library being developed or it
is "dead" ?
