So I built my first project using electron yesterday. Its a node lib that allows you to build cross-platform apps. But the real exciting thing is that it allows you too build GUI apps using web technologies like html and css but it’s not sandboxed like a browser so you still have access to low-level stuff like gpio.
It’s really awesome and I’m definitely going to use it for future projects. Anyway, I’ve made a very basic app so you can get started right away. Just push this to your device and attach a screen and you are in business.
To test on your local machine just run:
npm install && npm start
Hope you enjoy electron as much as I did!
