JS beyond the Web - Building Desktop Apps with JS
Introduction to varions JS binding for desktop toolkits.
Not going to cover any mobile related content.
JS is a language designed around Async concepts.
With Closures & Callbacks, JS is an excellant choice for building apps that have a lot of user-interaction and/or network/disk IO.
The talk should cover
- WebView wrappers like Titanium Appcelerator.
- GTK3 JS binding like GJS or Seed .. (Gnome-Shell uses GJS)
So If you a web-developer & experienced enough with Client-Side or Server-Side JS, & don’t like that particular app on your linux machine, Its about time you built your own.
You don’t need to learn Python, Vala, C etc. just to build desktop apps anymore.
