Building Desktop Apps with Vue.js
We all know that Vue.js is great for building out web applications. With services like Netlify, Azure and Firebase, going from idea to finished product is now faster than ever. But what about desktop applications? Is there a way to build out applications that just work everywhere? Enter Electron. With Electron you can easily build out those cross-platform desktop apps with Vue, Vite and Vitest. You'll have access to native system API's such as the filesystem, network and user interfaces. All while building with the tech stack that we all know and love. In this session, I will be discussing what Electron is and why it's a great solution for building out desktop apps. We will go over how to add Electron to your project, the gotcha’s with working in a desktop environment and how to take your project to the next level by building a desktop application with Electron.
