> I agree, there is a loud minority who religiously criticize Electron while most desktop apps get written in it.

Current GUI programs running on my computers:

- StumpWM :: not Electron

- emacs :: not Electron

- Firefox :: not Electron

- st :: not Electron

- Chromium :: not Electron

- dunst :: not Electron

- redshift :: not Electron

- xautolock :: not Electron

- nm-applet :: not Electron

From my own perspective, 'most desktop apps' are not written in Electron.




> - Chromium :: not Electron

Can't tell if this is a joke or not.


I meant basic GUI apps written in the last few years.


Running on macOS, I have a dozen or so native Cocoa applications written in the last few years.
