Guiliani is an easy-to-use framework for the quick and uncomplicated creation of visually appealing graphical user interfaces on embedded systems for all embedded engineers.

It combines the comfort of a PC based development toolchain with the benefits of a highly-optimized software framework, specifically designed for the use on resource-limited embedded hardware.
In addition to the modern C++ architecture of the framework the software engineer is supported by the Guilani Streaming Editor (GSE). The GSE allows you to easily create, modify or add functionality to elements of the GUI without the need of direct changes in the code.
Another advantage of the GSE is the easy management of resources such as images, texts and sounds, among others.

In the market today, products differentiate more and more through their GUI. Graphical User Interfaces have largely conquered our everyday life. Through the daily use of their smartphone or satellite navigation system, customers are used to operating their electronic devices via appealing GUI’s. Thanks to Guiliani, you can now offer such a comfortable user experience on your products, too. Benefit from a solid software that has been successfully used for more than 10 years, in millions of devices already.
