You could use it completely unchanged. It depends somewhat on your intended outcome, but since it’s just a HTML/CSS/JS webpage wrapped in Chromium and Node, you can use as much or as little as you feel is necessary.


thanks a lot ! i’m using a basic webview, it’s enough for our users :slight_smile:
