    For real, it's a solution that you can get a fui working pretty easy. Depending on what you want to do you can have the computation on another language (tkinter) or in Tcl.

    *"But Tcl is old and dead!" your cries goes... Not at all! It's one of the main languages used in EE tools (I'm thinking FPGA and other automation tools)

    I dont really see a disadvantage to something like electron except for humongous package size. But i guess most often thats not all that important if its 10mb or 100mb :/
    Or is it? I use electron-vue and im really happy with it

    @irene I'd rather call it different :-) it's quite different from C relatives and seems to have a hint of lisp...

    It's actually one of the languages I want to learn better
