Nova is a new kind of UI framework made for Unity developers, designers, and creators. It combines professional-caliber design tools, a comprehensive runtime API, and modern UI features such as rounded corners, borders, drop shadows, auto sizing, padding, margins, and more, into a familiar transform and prefab workflow.

Written from the ground up using Unity’s Burst compiler and Jobs System to provide performance out of the box along with zero per-frame GC allocations across all features!
