const createWindow = function(){
    win = new BrowserWindow({width: 900, height: 800});
    win.loadURL(`file://${__dirname}/index.html`);

    win.on('closed', () => {
        win = null;
    });

}
app.on('ready', createWindow);

// Quit when all windows are closed.
app.on('window-all-closed', () => {
  // On macOS it is common for applications and their menu bar
  // to stay active until the user quits explicitly with Cmd + Q
  if (process.platform !== 'darwin') {
    app.quit()
  }
});

app.on('activate', () => {
  // On macOS it's common to re-create a window in the app when the
  // dock icon is clicked and there are no other windows open.
  if (win === null) {
    createWindow()
  }
});

how to module loading

My experience

First try

  • CTA/PTA Desktop App

  • Very very very Simple(Just Webview)

  • avoid legacy browser issue (ex: IE 7, IE 8, IE 9)

But..

and second try

  • bali-e2e-test app

    • using node.js module

      • child_process

      • fs

      • url

      • path 

    • and client module

      • jquery

      • ansi-to-html

bali-e2e-test-app

main.js

script.js

index.html

style.css

bootstrap

Demo
