    it has it's usecases.
    It's like cordova for desktop pcs.
    Atom, VS Code, Slack is built with it.
    and it's easy to use.

    Use with caution, it's easy to write an electron app with serious security flaws.

    It's a neat way of using the web stack to write cross-platform apps that have OS level privileges. The trade-off is non-native UI/UX and performance, which can take a lot of work to overcome.

    It allows the app to have better looking UI (because JS/CSS) but makes simple apps like disoxrd or vscode using at least a GB of RAM each compare to a terminal based alternative that takes almost nothing.

    unless you have unlimited ram resources available i would suggest to look for alternatives

    @albi I don't think we should compare Electron with Terminal apps because they don't have GUI. Maybe with JavaFX apps because they are also cross platform?
