Development of Cross-Platform Desktop Apps using Electron Framework

Aravind Kumar B | Anitha Sandeep


Abstract: Desktop applications have their own benefits due to which they have the tendency to outperform web applications which are dependent upon a Web Browser which acts as the client interface. Browsers are many in number and vary from one another. They also keep getting upgraded as result of which one browser exists in many versions with varying feature and characteristics. At times, certain web applications may not be allowed to run on a particular web browser due to lack of compatibility or absence of specific version. One possible solution to this problem is development of Desktop Applications and in order to achieve this, a commonly used framework is the Electron Framework.
