Pushing Electron's Performance to the limits


#1

Hey everyone!

I’m curious if it’s possible to run another ‘instance’ of electron if you will, ontop of one client as a layer. (If this is even possible?)

For example, let’s say an app utilizes the DOM and HTML 5 Canvas. Dom is for the user interface only.

Now, let’s say that I want that particular DOM to be used in it’s own v8 isolate (a new electron app running) but the program be ran over (let’s say a layer) over the client. Not sure if this possible, but was thinking of something like this. Kind of a bit lost at explaining this, but hope someone gets it! :slightly_smiling:

King Regards

To be honest, I haven’t played with the canvas element much at all … but isn’t a canvas element in fact part of the DOM?
