One of the principles of software development is DRY, which stands for “Do not Repeat Yourself.” Yet, ironically, developers needed to write logic again and again for various different platforms. React Native has now allowed the logic layer to be used amongst Android and iOS mobile applications. Electron.js is another pivotal achievement in that direction.
Electron.js, developed by GitHub, is used to build cross-platform desktop applications, meaning they work on Mac, Windows and Linux platforms. Work on Electron.js began in 2013 when GitHub was developing Atom, a cross-platform text editor. Both were open-sourced in 2014.
Cazton has a team of highly-skilled developers having experience at top tech companies. Well-versed in the latest technologies, the Electron.js consulting team has the expertise backed with years of industry experience. Working masterfully with desktop development tools, we are known for successfully delivering scalable and modular applications that are easy to test and maintain.
In a world dominated by web-based development, one would wonder why desktop application is still relevant. Desktop-based, single-user targeted development is irreplaceable however, as it offers some benefits over the former:
Desktop Applications are installed on a single user’s machine. One task may accommodate multiple users, but cannot run on multiple machines. In web-based applications such as say, Google Docs, we can have multiple machines access the same document simultaneously. Programming in both cases is different. In case of web applications, Facebook has provided us with a cross-platform tool – React. For desktop, the equivalent technology is Electron.js by GitHub. Needless to say, it is open-source and free and provides for richer community interaction.
As a cross-platform development tool, Electron.js has been creating waves, throughout the industry. Some of its features are:
With each new technology, there comes new ways to master it, optimize its performance, ease its integration with other technologies and maximize efficiency of the system. If code in Electron.js is written carefully, it can improve performance manifold, but is also known to suck a lot of memory into its running if not implemented correctly. The team of experts at Cazton is well-versed to the rapidly changing technologies and can help you strike the perfect balance between the two. We provide excellent Electron.js application development, consulting and training services, backed by experience from working on the technology and in this industry for years.
