I’d like to explore the possibility of having complete control of rendering to a rectangle within an Electron app (via OpenGL or DirectX or Metal). Pepper plugins (PPAPI) seem like a feasible approach at first look, butI need a sanity check.
Am I crazy? If not, does anyone have a sense of the overhead of communicating graphics via PPAPI (assuming it’s an in-process plugin)?
I don’t want to use canvas or WebGL. I’m well aware of their power, but they don’t fit all needs.
