This shit is fucking cancer and it needs to die

This shit is fucking cancer and it needs to die. Fuck Zoomers who use this shit. They don't give a fuck if you are running a machine with 8GB of RAM. Your shitty app doesn't deserve to use over 1GB of my RAM. If you can't code desktop apps, don't fucking code desktop apps. Don't code a web app disguised as a desktop app that uses the same resource hogging functions as Google Chrome. Fuck you.

I agree but you need to come up with an alternative that is truly cross platform, has an extensive library, is reasonably fast, easy to make flexible GUIs in and easy to write. Until then, expect Electron to grow in popularity

here's a functioning finished app i wrote in electron because i wanted something on the desktop but cba to write anything native
i'm unironically sorry if your shit computer can't afford to spare whole sixty megabytes of ram, life must be hard for you

sixty megabytes
all those processes = about 130MB

Your shitty fucking Hello World app doesn't even deserve 13MB of my ram let alone 130MB

Fuck off

nobody cares about your obsolete qt and c++. nobody know this legacy techonologies.

vs code began as editor for web. it's only natural to let people who write js also write extensions for vs code.

Gtk for cross platform sucks , Qt lacks a few features and html and css are fully customise able. People would not use it if something else around was better. qbrt is an alternative to electron that has a smaller ram footprint.

It's not a fundamentally bad idea, but the implementation was haphazardly thrown together and is shit. I could live with the minimum 400 MB RAM use no matter how small/simple the app is (even though it gets quite annoying when you need 6 of these apps running), but I'm not so much a fan of the cold start times, the non-optional deep sleep that takes even longer to wake up from, and the baked-in delay that comes with every single input.

The only thing that can top Electron is cross-platform Apps is .NET-Core in its future versions but then you fucking retards will cry about

Download Atom
Jesus christ, it's 143 MB large. how is that actually possible? does every package have the complete language library in it or something?
instal Atom
holy fuck it's still not done. holy fuck it's STILL NOT DONE. 5 fucking minutes
ctrl + shift + escape
360 MB
without opening a single text file
So where is the one that isn't?

electron =/= atom, user
electron is a framework, atom is a shitty text editor written using it
its really not that hard to figure out
also, speaking of editors, try vscode

A simple text editor is pretty much the lightest possible thing that you can make in Electron. I'd be open to the idea that Atom is simply poorly made and that there are perfectly good examples of things made that don't have these problems.

But I have never found one.
Visual Studio Code. CPU 0%, RAM 320MB

(It's cute that VS Code reduces its download footprint to 45 MB then expands it up to 204 in the install process, though)

Now to get this garbage off of my computer.

Are you autistic? I develop in C++ mainly, but have done some real projects on electron.js that sold for $10k+

Electron is good for shitty stuff you need to do quickly for dumb-ass companies

C++ with wxWidgets or Qt is good for real efficient projects. Neither are obsolete.

Also nodeJS is good for multi-threading and not to mention if you know what you're doing you're actually going to do a good job and people won't notice.

atom is anything but a simple text editor, user
also it's definitely poorly made: for example its directory/file tree sidebar thing deals with git status synchronously and you can't turn it off (without hacking on the source) so if file access latency is non-zero, i.e. on a sshfs, the whole editor becomes a literal slideshow
electron is alright tho, for what it is
vscode
muh 300 megabytes of ram

It is not as widespread as you might think it is. You can happily live without it. It won't die until there will be a better tool for rapidly developing cross-platform applications and GUIs.
