Take your net dev expertise out of the browser! This course will train you the subjects it’s good to make a #1 best-selling desktop app.
Who builds desktop apps?!
Within the final 10 years there was an incredible shift from desktop to cell, true, however the result’s that there’s a big alternative to create desktop apps, as all different builders have shifted over to constructing cell! You may simply get into the entrance web page on the MacOS retailer with an app you spend a couple of days constructing – this may by no means occur on cell! The final app you’ll construct on this course will be simply tweaked right into a front-page app.
What Will You Construct?
All of my programs are ‘learn-by-doing’: no boring countless lectures with Powerpoints, solely reside, interactive coding examples. On this course we’ll construct 4 separate apps with growing complexity, every of which can profile completely different options of Electron. By placing every idea into an actual app, you’ll get a greater concept of when to make use of every distinctive and highly effective characteristic.
Each MacOS and Home windows supported!
Apps you’ll construct:
- Video File Analyzer. Discover ways to manipulate the underlying OS with this primary app, during which you’ll construct a device to research video recordsdata, supported by the FFMPEG CLI device. This app will get you conversant in Electron, together with an understanding of tips on how to construct a fundamental app.
- Cross Window Todo Checklist: Okay, yep, a todo app, I do know, however you’ll discover ways to manipulate a number of home windows with Electron, together with customizing the highest menu bar. Further emphasis is positioned on cross platform experiences between MacOS and Home windows
- System Tray Timer. Construct a basic system-tray based mostly app – that is the kind of app that exists as an icon by the clock in your desktop. You’ll discover ways to add a ton of polish to frequent Electron apps, which can make your customers assume that they’re utilizing a totally native expertise.
- Video File Converter. Make an app that may convert video recordsdata to another format. Current apps with the very same characteristic set promote for $10 on the MacOS retailer. This device is amazingly helpful, and is one thing that I use day by day myself!
Right here’s what we’ll study:
- Study the speculation and historical past behind Electron
- Construct complicated desktop purposes utilizing repeatable processes
- Assemble each basic desktop apps and ‘tray-based’ apps
- Add polish to your Electron apps, making them really feel extra native
- Sidestep the frequent pitfalls related to Electron
I’ve constructed the course that I’d have needed to take once I was studying Electron. A course that explains the ideas and the way they’re applied in the very best order so that you can study and deeply perceive them.
Who this course is for:
- Anybody who desires to create compelling native desktop purposes
