People like to shit on Electron, but the same time want an app for everything.

IMHO it is unrealistic for most open source web based projects to offer native apps. Many try to provide an API for 3rd party developers to utilize, but other than that it is Electron or nothing really.

Personally I don’t really see the problem in running stuff in the browser. That is more secure in most cases anyways.

Had to do an assignment for university. Had to present some data in a nice way. It couldn’t be a website, had to be a runnable app. So, Electron it was.

Post funny things about programming here! (Or just rant about your favourite programming language.)
