I'll probably get crucified for this but I'd probably use Java. It has a proved track record and it's cross platform. I'd avoid Electron because a lot of Electron apps have performance issues. Another possibility would be building a Progressive Web App.

If I'd have to choose a technology from your list I'd probably use Rust. Fast, safe and there's lots of buzz around it.

Hahahah yeah, if there is one thing you cannot call me is Java admirer.

Lots of rust suggestions around. Even though it was last on my list looks like I will have a serious look on the possibility. 🙂

I've played around with Rust a little because my brother loves it and even though I hate low level programming languages like C with a passion, I thought it really intuitive. So yeah, give it a go :)
