A new rising star claiming to take over the world of desktop applications smoothing the rough edges between web, mobile and desktop.
If you still haven’t heard the name Electron – you are going to hear a lot on it in the following years. There are already many applications that are built with Electron, for example: Slack, Atom editor, Visual Studio Code and many others.
Electron is a new way to build cross-platform desktop applications based on the well known Chromium and Node.js engines that are already popular in the industry.
Technically speaking, you can automate Electron applications as if they were standard web applications using Selenium Chrome Driver.
