    Electron is so shit and painful to do. But VSCode is built from it.

    Electron is why we have cross platforms apps that works on every bullshit OS.

    So shut the fuck up and thank Electron for bringing slack/Spotify/vscode/... to Linux ❤️

    @MagicSowap If they had some competent programmers they could also use Rust and make some good crossplatform apps instead of desktop websites

    @12bitfloat I love Rust, but last time I checked, the gui crates sucked.
    Maybe they're now more usable, but even then, they are way too young :/

    + competent rust programmers are still rare & costly compared to JS interns

    @MagicSowap Spotify should not be in that list. And is by far the more important/best application of the three.

    Haha so many butthurt cuz electronjs is most popular framework for creating crossplatform apps. Qt is fucking dead cuz of licensing and nobody uses GTK even though its actually decent.
