Never tried, so I don't know. But I also know what happens, when Microsoft starts to touch anything with their unclean hands.
Poor github. The kitten will live in our hearts forever..
Just lost contacts with ground control, circuits are dead and something goes wrong. And so on, how it was in a song :-)
Ordinary the same toolkit, where you can delete and add nodes in layout, debug code, change styles. And watch how you're brooking the editor
Best or not - is a matter of taste. Someones prefer VS Code (MS fork of Atom as I remembered?), saying that it is faster than Atom. But I didn't check it, as I don't use it.
Relating to the Electron, from the one point it is nice to develop a desktop apps, by using any favorite web-libraries and frameworks. But when a chat apps (it were Slack and Rocket Chat) are starting to eat last peaces of memory, while your own code is recompiling - the only wish after that is not to use them again. From the point of resources the old pidgin is rather good.
We live in interesting time when the edge between web and desktop disappears. Who knows maybe WebAssembly will be the next light in the tunnel.
Electron based on Chromium. Just open Atom, choose in menu View -> Developer -> Toggle Developer Tools. And you see the familiar dev tools screens which exists in any chromium based browsers. And here you can modify and experiment with atom's html layouts, it sources, styles, etc. Everything the same you can do with a web-app's clients in chrome (and others).
All of these can be done in any Electron app. And also Mozilla created Electron's clone - Positron, which is based on Gecko engine.
@pe7erpark3r Electron also uses html and css.
Our discussion begins to mix in terms. Yes, Electron isn't a browser engine itself, but it use it inside of it. So there is nothing wrong to say that every Electron's app based on browser engine.
And it also based on C++, as Blink and V8 are using it And It also based on assembler, as every program.
@spaceboy is not based on browser engine , is based on Git (not an engine tho)
As Atom's developers said here https://github.com/atom/atom
Atom is a hackable text editor for the 21st century, built on Electron
Then open Electron link https://github.com/electron/electron
So, it based
But it won't be a madness to drink another pint of beer together
@Lurker This experiment become unstable
@Lurker Captain Lurker as I suppose
Just a bit more free time. And a little bit more will, to stop the procrastination
