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.

2. Accessibility.

3. High performance.

4. Simplified management.

5. Electron Js is a reusable framework.

6. Compatibility with all javascript frameworks and libraries.

7. Interaction with web UI/UX tools

8. Reduced expenses and time.
