    So is it essentially an editor extension that lets you make editor extensions?

    uniForms is not only an editor extension. The sound basis of uniForms is a C# UI framework, that lets you construct Editor UI with or without designer supplied with uniFroms.

    uniForms framework is based purely on IMGUI API - it is not importing any other 3rd party software or library. Using this framework will let you create Editor UI without touching the IMGUI API, with better control over the overall editor design and architecture.

    Looks pretty cool, so enables people to make powerful editor windows without having to learn or use the rather cumbersome IMGUI?

    That is one of our goals when working on uniForms. We want to give our users intuitive API, similar to what is known from industry standards like Windows Forms or WPF.

    Keep in mind, that uniForms framework will give you possibility to write your own controls - so if you are familiar with IMGUI you can use it along with uniForms framework to create a complex control that suits your needs.

    I am very interested in the clean design of the API. Would uniForms allow me to create dialogs and popups akin to WinForms while writing and reading data to and from the created forms? Examples would include custom input-dialogs, message boxes of any kind etc.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I checked out the links provided above. Looks very reminiscent of WinForms; this certainly has me excited!
