Electron Development Company

Windows, Mac, Linux… the Electron JS framework offers seamless cross-platform desktop development.

We use Electron development to rapidly build desktop applications that have all the benefits of native products, without splitting teams or pushing deadlines back.

Create your next product with Electron JS, an open-source framework from GitHub.

From large scale messaging to cross-platform database solutions, the Electron framework has helped companies gain a quick foothold across all desktop markets, focusing on great service over separate products.

We use our extensive Electron JS experience in the same fashion - by cutting down on development challenges, we can apply a bigger focus to unique UX/UI, effective testing and a faster release schedule.

What Companies Use Electron Development?

Electron JS is used in some surprising applications. Here are some of the most famous apps to use it in their desktop services.

Slack

Electron is one of the reasons Slack has been able to adapt, update and innovate across all platforms at once.

Microsoft Teams

Electron comes from Github, a subsidiary of Microsoft. Naturally, their products represent the very best of what’s possible with Electron.

WhatsApp

By streamlining development, WhatsApp keeps development simple, saving effort for providing a smooth, fast service.

Spotify

Spotify’s music streaming is available as both a web and a desktop application. Electron helps to keep things consistent and streamlines.
The company that uses React Native - Discord

Discord

The voice, text and video chat service has used Electron in its development for a long time, leading to its success and adaptability.

Twitch

A live-streaming service, Electron enables Twitch to rollout website updates that perform on all platforms.

Why should you create desktop services with the Electron framework?

Electron was built by developers for developers. It’s one of the best go-to choices for creating light, adaptable desktop applications across all platforms.

At its core, Electron supports web development from the very first step, as it’s designed for use with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS - the web essentials. If that’s not enough, it’s also written in C++, JavaScript, Objective-C++, Python and Objective-C, as well as some Node.js support, if needed.

All of this means that Electron doesn’t have a steep learning cover that other technologies or solutions have. It’s why we use React Native over Xamarin or Flutter for mobile - it’s our ideal choice for creating a centralized application that runs on any platform and any browser, without the endless configuration.

The Electron framework was built for both web and desktop apps in mind, which gives it immediate versatility out of the box.

Paired with our expertise (and choice tools), it can do even more!

Automatic Updates

With AutoUpdater and GitHub support, you can instantly deploy updates service-wide.

Portability

Apps created with Electron don’t need installation procedures, which makes the final product even easier to use.

Cross-Platform Efficiency

With Electron, you can develop for all desktop platforms at once, cutting down on time and teams needed.

High Performance

If you keep your app component-light, Electron can even outperform the heavier native alternatives.

JavaScript Compatible

Have a favorite JS library or framework? Chances are it works with Electron - which makes for even smoother & effective development!

Fast Development

If you’ve already got a React.js or Angular web app, you can reuse parts of the codebase for even quicker desktop development.
