I made an electron app in 4 lines...
nativefier "http://musicforprogramming.net/" -n "musicforprogramming" cd musicforprogramming-linux-x64/ sudo chmod +x musicforprogramming ./musicforprogramming
I like music, but don't like music in browser tabs. Basically because i have it open all the time, I want to find and control it easily, and I don't want it cluttering up an area that might be soley focused on work.
I discovered some neat apps for google play, and wanted to see if there was one for my other go to, musicforprogramming. There wasn't, so I just casually googled how to convert a page into an electron app and OMFG!
Nativefier is maintained by YOU. It's reasonably sane to hack on nowadays it fits the use cases needed by the original author and the current maintainer so we are not doing any active development.
But it's alive! It at least follows Electron releases with maintenance patches
and if YOU use it and want to see juicy features & fixes, PR welcome!
Help welcome in particular on our pinned issues,

Thanks! Take care.

Nativefier is a command-line tool to easily create a desktop app for any web site

(which uses Chromium under the hood) in an OS executable (
