Javascript Question

desktop application on Chrome

I have a basic knowledge of html, css and javascript, enough to build some simple web sites.

What I need now is to create a simple desktop application (bookmarks manager), running on Chrome, win7 64bit.

Is it possible without learning a new language and please for some short steps?

Answer

If you want a desktop application based on chrome engine your choice is Electron. It's certainly the best option available now. It offers:

  • Great docs
  • Many examples and code snippets
  • Very broad and helping open-source community
  • All desktop app features fully packed in one beautiful engine
  • Only javascript/html/css knowlege needed ...And much more

You'll probably want to start with the Docs with many great guides inside.
