Cross Platform Desktop Application Development:Electron, Node, NW.js and React
Release Finelybook 出版日期：2017-09-06
Build different cross-platform HTML5 desktop applications right from planning, designing, and deployment to enhancement, testing, and delivery
Forget the pain of cross-platform compatibility and build efficient apps that can be easily deployed on different platforms.
Build simple to advanced HTML5 desktop apps, by integrating them with other popular frameworks and libraries such as Electron, Node.JS, Nw.js, React, Redux, and TypeScript
As the second application you will build a chat-system example implemented with Electron and React. While developing the chat app, you will get Photonkit. Next, you will create a screen capturer with NW.JS, React, and Redux.
Finally, you will examine an RSS-reader built with TypeScript, React, Redux, and Electron. Generic UI components will be reused from the React MDL library. By the end of the book, you will have built four desktop apps. You will have covered everything from planning, designing, and development to the enhancement, testing, and delivery of these apps.
