Electron Development Services
Electron might sound like a stable subatomic particle with a charge of negative electricity, but it’s also a popular open-source software framework that’s developed and maintained by GitHub.
Regularly used to build desktop apps, it’s a strategic combination of Chromium and Node.js technologies. Node.js is used for the back-end operations, while Chromium assumes responsibility for the front-end.
Why Choose Electron.js?
Electron.js is a preferred app framework for numerous reasons, including benefits such as the following:
Simple to learn
From a developer perspective, Electron is one of the easier frameworks to learn and deploy. This saves both the developer and client time and money.
All information is locally stored within the system. This makes the transferring of the existing app to a cross-platform app using Electron highly safe and secure.
Electron.js apps tend to be developed much faster than native apps. That’s because only a single code is implemented into multiple platforms. This reusability saves time and money, resulting in a much more efficient process for all parties involved.
The fact that Electron.js uses chromium for UI display makes it easy to implant all of the latest updates and features of Chrome. And with hot reloading and live reloading features included, the process is quick and streamlined. (It’s also unnecessary to use an external debugger, as it’s able to detect errors and memory leakage on its own.)
One of the biggest perks of Electron is that it’s highly efficient. This means you get your application in less time and at less cost.
