Anyone used Electron at all? What are your thoughts?

    Yup. Although it creates pretty big programs (in size), it's fucking awesome being able to create desktop software in the web stack!

    I have been using this platform for couple of projects. It's pretty powerful. You can wrap web apps or make local web solution apps with react , nodejs... There is couple of issues with iframes and webpack, but in summary it's good for fast cross platform app solutions

    @CCTrollz isn't Java the Java of the desktop? I've seen many more desktop apps in Java than web apps in Java

    I mean yeah. But Electron is starting to get more popular, on the bleeding edge of development, namely very simple GUIs for some big block chain projects.
