Build Modern Desktop Apps Using Electron
Electron is an open-source framework created by GitHub. Electron allows you to use web technologies to develop desktop Graphic User Interface applications. Combining the Node.js runtime and Chromium rendering engine, Electron ensures high-quality application development.
Used in many popular apps, like Discord and Slack, Electron combines frontend and backend technologies and offers a plethora of handy tools that help developers deliver top software. Electron can be really powerful in the hands of experienced developers, like those from Astec.
Advantages of Using Electron
Electron uses one codebase both for web and desktop applications, which makes the development process much faster. Moreover, a single codebase helps developers avoid the headache of maintaining separate code for different platforms.
Electron offers detailed documentation that walks you through all secrets of the framework. Difficult concepts have a straightforward explanation, so developers can grasp complex ideas quickly and put the saved time into app development.
Electron has a big, thriving community of passionate developers always ready to help you solve your issue. Ready solutions to most common problems are just a click away, and even if the problem is less popular, you can still count on the community’s help.

How Can Electron Help My Business?
We have prepared answers to some of the most common questions asked about Electron web development:
Is Electron good for desktop app development?
Can you use Electron with other frameworks?
Which apps have been built using Electron?
Is Electron the right choice for cross-platform development?
Part of what makes developing desktop apps difficult is ensuring cross-platform compatibility. Windows, Linux and macOS are systems with very different implementations of its features. What it effectively means is that if you would like to write an application for all three operating systems, you would normally have to rewrite big chunks of code, or even maintain separate projects for each operating system. Lucky for you, you don’t have to! Electron does the job for you. Electron solves the problem by providing a single platform for Windows, Linux and macOS, which means that developers write a piece of code and can be sure it will flawlessly work on all three operating systems. Electron saves developers from the headache of porting from one operating system to another.
