Electron is a framework for building desktop applications using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. This is achieved by embeddng Chromium and Node.js

There are some drawbacks of using Electron.

  • Embeded Chromium and Node.js results in large app size, higher memory consumption.
  • Electron doesn't have official templates for TypeScript, Vue, React, etc.
    • Have to build everything from scratch or use a community maintained boilerplate.
