Can we dynamically link to electron framework and avoid app bloat?


I am seeing that my simple single window application is coming out to be ~112 MB, the electron framework (1.4.13) packaged inside it is around 64 MB. Is there a way to dynamically link electorn framework (like what one usually does with .dylib / .dll / .so) and reduce the app size ?
