Electron in Action¬†guides you, step-by-step, as you learn to build desktop applications that run on Windows, OSX, and Linux. You’ll begin by getting the big picture of Electron, what it is, and how it works. Then you’ll learn to use OS-specific features like the file system, menus, and clipboards as you build your first desktop project, a notes application. Along the way, you’ll debug errors and diagnose performance bottlenecks with Chrome’s developer tools, package your application as a standalone executable for each OS, and even distribute it to app stores. By the end, you’ll be ready to build your own professional desktop applications using the web tools and technologies you already know. Click through the slide deck for more information.
