Is electron a framework?


#1

It seems to be an API rather than a framework. Are there any MVC js frameworks that can be used with it? I’ve tried using web frameworks like React and Aurelia, but their build process (either browserify or webpack) fall over when used in conjunction with non-browser based node modules, such as child-process-promise.

If you check out the Awesome Electron repository, there are some resources for working with React. I don’t know of a centralized or recent source for info about Aurelia with Electron, but searching turns up some previous work that could be examined.

Electron is just Node and part of Chromium, so you can do anything with it that you could with Node in a browser.
