Electron Js Course And Certification

What is Electron Js?

Electron Js which is formerly referred to as Atom Shell is an open-source desktop application development framework that is developed and managed by GitHub. Electron allows software developers to build desktop Graphical User Interfaces(GUI) applications with web technologies like Html, CSS, and Javascript. It joins together the Chromium rendering engine and the runtime engine of Node.js. Electron Js is the main GUI framework that is used to build several notable and very popular open-source projects including GitHub Desktop, Atom, Light Table, Visual Studio Code, and WordPress Desktop.

Software applications built with Electron Js are made up of multiple processes. There is the "browser" process and other "renderer" processes. The browser process executes the application logic, and can then start and run multiple renderer processes, such as rendering the windows that appear on a user's screen together with rendering HTML and CSS markups and styles. Both the browser and renderer processes can be executed with the integration of Node.js if it is enabled. Most of Electron Js APIs are developed with Objective-C or C++ and then exposed directly to the application software by means of Javascript bindings.

Because desktop applications that are developed with Electron are simply web applications that are running on the Chromium browser engine, they are also vulnerable to web-related attacks such as the popular cross-site scripting attacks, through the same attack vectors like a browser (for example, Chromium) or through other internal components (Node.js in this case) if using certain versions of Electron. Most of those web application vulnerabilities have already been fixed in the 1.7.13, 1.8.4, and 2.0.0-beta.5 releases of Electron.

With Electron Js, the tedious and hard parts of developing a desktop application are taken away and it made simple the work involved in packaging, updating, installation, providing support for native menus, notifications, dialogs and optimizing the app crash reports. Electron JS very much handles all these very important steps so the user can focus on the functionality of his or her application alone.

Features of Electron Js

There are many features of Electron Js and some of them are:

1. Electron JS makes use of web technologies like regular HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It does not need you to possess native application development skills unless you want to do something more advanced and complex. It can be developed for a single browser. Its file system completely belongs to Node.js APIs and it is also cross-platform with its applications working on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

2. Electron Js uses the NPM module which is a very popular and widely used module of JavaScript. It is made up of a native menu for notifications and dialogs. The windows installers do not need any special configuration.

3. Electron Js also has the features of auto-updating to latest release and crash reporting on Windows and Mac with Squirrel. The crash reports are then submitted to the remote server for further analysis to produce a fix. Various tracing activities like profiling and debugging are looked after by Chromium.

Benefits of Electron Js

1. High data security in its applications: All the data is stored within the user's computer system, so no worries about being hacked. The user has total control over standalone applications and therefore it allows protection from various vulnerabilities.

2. Flexibility: To write desktop apps, developers can use the user’s computer hardware like serial ports, cameras, network ports, scanners, and Wi-Fi.

3. High performance: A desktop app, if designed correctly will load only what’s needed. So they take up less memory and fewer resources, thereby improving the performance and increasing the app’s efficiency. This makes it faster and more responsive than web apps, this is because web apps inherently carry overhead that you see with a general-purpose web server.

4. Electron Js is a reusable framework: Electron can be used both for desktop and web applications because of its single code base, so every change and bug fix is simpler to implement.

5. Compatibility with all javascript frameworks and libraries: Electron works with all JS frameworks and libraries like React JS, or Node.js, which are enough to build high-quality apps.

6. Interaction with web UI/UX tools: You are open to multiple technologies that provide great User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) to all your users with great comfort. Also, you can be sure that you are providing the same experience to all your users across different platforms.

7. Reduced expenses and time: Management of single code for all platforms reduces development time, and fewer hours means reduced costs. That means happy clients and happy developers!

8. Cross-Platform Desktop Apps: A huge benefit of Electron development is that you can build desktop apps with well-known web technologies – HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and get them running on Mac, Linux or Windows. Applications dedicated to different operating systems using a common codebase can be built with Electron.
