Node.js Question

node js - How do I create build for commercial usage?

I am working on node js application and it is now ready to use. I want to make exe of this application so that it can be used for commercial usage.

Up to now I have used enclose module using which I have compiled the code of application but I have found some issues in that (app got crash on idle condition). App is running good without enclose or compiled code.

I have searched on google and found some alternate modules like JXcore, Node webkit and Electron etc. but JX core giving error same as in SO question.

In node web-kit, it's functionality is not looking suitable as we need its executable and some dll's along with our code, which makes our package bulky.

I have also tried jxcore. The main problem with the exe's and with modules that we use is their ability to work with native modules, in my case the Kinect.node module. This module cannot be compiled. We need a workaround to package only this along with our .exe file. Enclose provides this workaround in its inbuilt functionality.

Also looking a response from EncloseJS, which is actually run by just one person who gives further instructions upon purchase. A purchase is needed for commercial usage.

In case of Electron, It is supporting only

Electron-based application source code
. So If I choose this then I have to modify my application code.

So can any one suggest me what can I do to make exe file from node js code there?

Thank you!

I have gotten my answer:

First, reason was DiskDB database, it was not compatible with the node webkit so that is why I was getting error of native modules.

Now I am using sqlite3 module for local database. It is better than DiskDB.

Second, One reason was free version of enclose, Paid version of Enclose JS module ignores the timeout issue which I was getting.

This way I have resolved my question.
