Building Desktop Applications with Electron and Node
In this talk, we’ll use Node to build cross-platform desktop applications that are free from the constraints of traditional web applications. We’ll use Github’s Electron project to create a simple note taking application that sits in your menu bar, waiting patiently to be invoked. Our application will have complete access to the file system and be able to store our notes as plain text files that can be easily backed up or synced. Along the way, we’ll explore some additional features and capabilities as well as how to use leverage all of npm when building a variety of rich desktop applications.
