Is it possible to deploy a Atom App in Windows App Store


#1

Hey,

Did you guys have any success deploying a atom shell inside the Windows App Store?

Thanks.


#2

I’m also curious - has anyone tried this process?

I am also interested.

Has anyone done it? Is it allowed, by the TOS?

Simply, you can’t. The Windows App Store is entirely ‘Universal Windows Platform’ apps.

UWP has support for webby languages, and has a WinJS library/framework for writing UWP apps. But there’s no Chromium bundling, just IE/Edge.

Cordova has support for building to the Windows platform, which hopefully means only a small amount of changes to your code-base.
