Preface

HTML5 desktop application development is gaining momentum, and it s no wonder if you take into consideration that JavaScript is now the most popular programming language on the web. The set of HTML5 features combined with Node.js and the runtime API is impressively rich, to say nothing of the countless Node.js modules available on GitHub. In addition, HTML5 desktop applications can be distributed across different platforms (Window, macOS, and Linux) without any modifications in the code.

The goal of this book is to help the reader discover what exciting opportunities unlock Node.js-driven runtime (NW.js and Electron) to a JavaScript developer and how surprisingly easy it is to catch up on programming specifics in this area.
