Cross Platform Desktop Apps with Electron by GitHub

OK, my new fascination is officially Electron by GitHub. I’ve hacked on it for maybe 30 minutes and am already excited to find a little project to build on it. Basically, it seems like a really nice way to build cross platform desktop apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In just a few minutes I pulled in a few node modules and had a little hello world app running on Windows 10 with native dialog messages and toolbars. Really beautiful. Can’t wait to dig deeper into this. Hopefully I’ll have something more useful to post about it soon!
