Which tools/language to use to build desktop apps in 2019?

Hey everyone,
I'm trying to decide on which tools/language to use to realize an idea I have for a desktop application which would include a GUI. Right now I have some JavaScript and TypeScript experience.
What tools and which language should I use to embark on this desktop app journey in 2019? Would you e.g. recommend sticking with JS/TS and build the app in Electron despite its performance problems or maybe I should learn Java, Kotlin, or Python?
Looking forward to an interesting discussion :)
