Tauri - Electron alternative

#1 Post by webfork » Thu Jun 16, 2022 7:36 pm

I've talked a LOT about Electron on this site and elsewhere and I'm definitely sick of it. So while it's early yet to hope a new project will take the crown, there's another lighter and greener option.

Reading the comments on the ycomb thread, I am so hopeful..

Reminds me of the old adage: "Write once, test everywhere" :D

Hmm, it uses native webviews on each platform. That allows it to be far more lightweight than Electron, while having a similar programming model.

The idea sounds promising. Let's hope Tauri takes off. :)
