Does it feel as though everyone is doing web development these days? Where I work, every new app is a web app. But sometimes, an application has to run on the desktop and interact with the host OS. In such cases, it seems foolish to ignore all of those web development skills. Now, you don’t have to.
Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
- Building the UI with the Ionic Framework, showcasing that Ionic isn’t just about mobile development anymore.
- Using Electron to host the Ionic code inside of a native application shell.
- Interacting with the desktop OS to display icons and menus, loading files, and responding to user menu selections.
- Building installers appropriate for either platform, and creating public releases from those installers.
- Implementing auto-updates, so that the users only have to install the app once.
By the end this course, you’ll see just how simple it can be to build a real-world, functioning cross-platform app with Electron and Ionic.
I hope you'll take a look at my course. Expected release in July 2017.
