I am looking for a tool to build a GUI.

this GUI

  • allows the user to set some settings; upload a file
  • connects to other webservices
  • gets frequently updated by these services and shows the result to the user
  • conserves resources
  • can run in a webbrowser
  • single webpage: no reloading/refreshing of the site

I hope for a tool to build a GUI without much effort. Ive tried electron, but its for desktop only. I've thought about php/ajax, but I don't want to build everything from the scratch. Hope for some suggestions/thoughts.

for example: I would love to do have a tool to build a powerful gui like lichess which has everything I am looking for.

  • Nowhere in your requirements appears desktop, are you wanting to use a normal desktop program or a webpage? Also, pretty much any web GUI framework can do that, can you narrow your needs to something more specific?
