Electron? Desktop x Web


#1

if your JavaScripts app made in Electron are running into the browser with Chrome, why you guys keeping saying “We can make desktop applications” with Electron?

Whats the difference between a app developed in C or C++ programming language to run in windows (which I would say is a “desktop application”) and an app developed in Electron? Why do you say that apps developed using Electron are desktop apps?

Thanks a lot

I think its for web develope who want create desktop application.
just u know node js have so strongly modules and easy to create it

if one web developer who dont want learn other languages (c c++ java c#) Its focus the node modules of electron.
sorry for my bad english

I think the question you are trying to ask is “what is the difference between a web app running in a browser and an Electron app?” – there is a lot of commonality, and you can make an electron app which is just a web app, but it also has access to the local system in the same way as a native app (via nodejs, some electron apis, or writing your own extensions).
