About the Technology
Wouldn’t it be great to build desktop applications using just your web dev skills? Electron is a framework designed for exactly that! Fully cross-platform, Electron lets you use JavaScript and Node to create simple, snappy desktop apps. Spinning up tools, games, and utilities with Electron is fast, practical, and fun!
About the Book
Electron in Action teaches you to build cross-platform applications using JavaScript, Node, and the Electron framework. You’ll learn how to think like a desktop developer as you build a text tool that reads and renders Markdown. You’ll add OS-specific features like the file system, menus, and clipboards, and use Chromium’s tools to distribute the finished product. You’ll even round off your learning with data storage, performance optimization, and testing.
