Desktop Harness (Overview)

What if it was never really about the web?

A long-standing challenge in the IT industry is developing cross-platform applications; applications that run well on Windows®, Mac OS®, and Linux® platforms.

The web, while not intended as an app platform, made it possible to leverage browsers as a cross-platform virtual machine; a VM running HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

What if it was about cross-platform apps all along?

Microsoft Teams,
Visual Studio Code,
and many more…

What do these successful applications have in common?

They all use Electron.

Major companies are taking advantage of Electron to create powerful desktop applications, applications that far surpass their browser-based variants, when such variants even exist.

Now it's your turn.


TIBET + Electron
