It does rather depend what type of functionality you are looking for.

Aside from the usual suspects (Qt, WxWidgets etc.) there is no single "framework", but there are some amazing cross platform libraries. For example, in addition to the Standard library and Boost, I can recommend POCO[^], STLSoft[^] and Xerces[^].

The biggest challenge is building and deploying them as there's no unifying build/deployment mechanism for C++ libraries (we use a bunch of custom scripts). However, there are a few package managers (e.g. Conda[^], Conan[^] or Pacm[^]) which are trying to make this easier.
