If you can build a website, you can build a desktop app. Electron is a framework for creating native applications with JavaScript. It takes care of the hard parts so you can focus on the core of your application.


Growing Avocode on top of Electron
Vojta Tranta (@iVojta), JavaScript developer Avocode

We have been building Avocode on top of Electron since there has been no Electron only Atom shell. We had to rewrite Avocode to separate codebase from Atom’s code and port it to Electron APIs.

We encountered lots of struggles along the road and we will share with you few topping ones.

Learn how we separated Electron components from our code.
How we build developer friendly API along native Menu API.
The way we fight with desktop app auto updates.
Our approach to running one codebase on the desktop and the web.
