Plan to wrap Emscripten in Desktop App Wrapper (Electron)

Post by OpenXTalkPaul »

I'm going to try to wrap our OXT web playground as an Electron app.
If it works out, then I think we can, possibly quite easily, add (or reenable?) a FreeBSD deploy option (and/or any other platform where Electron has been ported to). Electron for FreeBSD is available in the official 'Ports' packages.

There are actually a bunch of alternatives for wrapping web apps into 'Native' (or at least near-native) apps.
This one uses whatever web view the operating systems includes (WebKit,Edge,etc.) instead of including the full-blown (and fairly large) Google Chromium engine or derivatives:
