Electron is a framework that makes it easy to create cross-platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Electron and open-source tools give you everything you need to create a compelling desktop app--native user interface elements like menus and dialogs, installers, auto-updates, and more.

This course will teach you the core concepts of Electron so that you can leverage it to create your own desktop application for macOS and Windows.

We'll go over:

  • Creating user interfaces in Electron (both HTML based and native)
  • Understanding Electron's multi-process architecture
  • Shipping your app to users

    What did you like about this course?

    Very straight forward. Short and to the point. The length of the video are miss-leading. Even if it looks like they are short, in reality they are trimmed of unnecessary pauses and it looks like the speed of playback is a little accelerated, all that makes it difficult to follow along but they are packed with info
