Book Description

The Electron framework allows you to use modern web technologies to build applications that share the same code across all the operating and platforms. That also provides easy transitioning of the from the web to the desktops.

This book helps you get started with building cross- Electron applications with modern web technologies and Javascript frameworks like Angular, React.js or Vue.js. It guides you through the process of configuring modern javascript frameworks and UI libraries, real-time analytics and automatic updates, interactions with the operating system. We start with a basic Electron application and move to a Markdown Editor implementation alongside experimenting with the major JavaScript frameworks. Then we will build a screenshot snipping tool, a mini-game, and a music player. We will also cover the analytics, bug tracking and licensing. We will learn to build a chat application, an eBook generator and finally create a simple digital wallet application.

By the end of the book, you will have a variety of projects and project templates to apply your knowledge to building other cross-platform applications of your choice.
