I would like to announce wxStartPage: a wxWidgets 3.2 landing page for an application (similar to the one in Word).

It displays a most-recently-used file list on the right side (up to 9 files) and a list of customizable buttons on the left.

  • Users clicking on these buttons can be handled via a wxEVT_STARTPAGE_CLICKED event.
  • Modified dates are shown next to each file in the MRU list. These dates are shown in a human readable format (e.g., "Just now", "12 minutes ago", "Yesterday", "Tues at 1:07 PM").
  • Human readable file paths are shown below the files (e.g., "Documents » Invoices")
  • Includes a "Clear file list" button beneath the MRU list.
  • The application name & logo can be shown above the custom buttons.
  • A dynamic greeting is shown above the MRU list (which is also customizable).
  • Customizable theming.
  • Supports dark mode.
It is available at https://github.com/Blake-Madden/wxStartPage.
