I would probably start with the Rust bindings for web-view, so that I could build the app with HTML, CSS and JS, and implement in Rust any OS operations that I would need to expose to the app.

The main reason to go with this approach is that I'd like to avoid electron's large memory footprint, but I know how to use the web stack and I think HTML and CSS are very powerful and flexible when it comes to building UIs.
