Electron Overview

Electron is an open source, cross platform library for building Desktop GUI applications with CSS, HTML and JavaScript. It is developed by GitHub and it uses Chromium and Node.js to display the GUI. Electron was devised to create GitHub’s Atom editor.

VSCode can be used as an editor on all of the platforms (Linux, Windows and MacOS). VSCode can even be used to debug Electron applications. https://electronjs.org/docs/tutorial/debugging-main-process-vscode https://github.com/octref/vscode-electron-debug
