Read It Later, yet an other GTK & Rust application
Late last year, I wanted to find an application that I can try the Rust async features with it. I started looking for a service that had a nice Rust API wrapper already and I started prototyping Read It Later on top of wallabag-rs.
Read It Later, is a well designed Wallabag client. It’s built with Rust, GTK & libhandy on the UI side. It’s fully adaptive which makes it Linux on pocket ready and also comes with a beautiful icon designed by Tobias Bernard.

It allows you to do the basic things:
- Add/Favorite/Archive/Delete an article
- Dark Mode Reader
- Adaptive UI
You can grab it already from Flathub at https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.belmoussaoui.ReadItLater. If you would like to contribute, the source code is available at https://gitlab.gnome.org/bilelmoussaoui/read-it-later
So far, writing apps with GTK & Rust have been a fun experience. GNOME Builder & Flatpak made the developer experience smooth 🙂
