re: Building a MarkDown Reader in Electron VIEW POST


I have a question.

The educational side is nice, but...

For something as simple as that, why not build a real desktop software made for that and not an embedded webapp ported to desktop ?

Code wouldn't really be harder and the overall performance and stability of the system would be much greater, while, for something as simple as that, keeping a very low level of maintainability.


I think because it's so simple you shouldn't have to go learning Objective C and Cocoa or C# if you're writing Windows apps. If there was more to it, sure, I could see whipping up something in ObjC or C#. But both of those languages require a bit more overhead and ObjC is notoriously a pain to work with. So I think choosing Electron for such a simple app makes sense.
