Updating app without the auto update feature


Can an Electron app simply just update itself without depending on any server utility. Since an Electron app is basically a web-based app using HTML and Javascript, couldn’t you just create an “empty” app that has no UI or code other than some bootup Javascript code that downloads the entire UI and other scripts to run the app?


You can have as much of it live on the net as you like. Either way, you need a server to provide the updated code.
