Is there any documentation / examples showing an electron app that is simply a wrapper for a remote node.js / express application.
It would be desirable to have the electron app reside on a network share (as opposed to each client workstation) so that updates occurred in a single place at the client site, while the node.js / express app resides / executes at a cloud site, i.e. AWS etc.
I would like to take advantage of electron’s rendering engine to eliminate multiple browser / version support, and this application requires access to the local network file system. Seems like electron as a wrapper might be able to facilitate both these features.
A one time setup / install for each client workstation is acceptable, but not feasible to perform multiple future updates individually at each client due to the large number of workstations (> 200) and the fact that updates would require IT departmental resources due to security constraints preventing users from updating software on their workstations.
Current application is C++ / MFC .exe and resides on a single network shared location and is loaded dynamically via windows desktop shortcut.
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated
