[07-25 04:16][Newbie]Icewolfz: web stuff is not to bad i figured it some somewhat
[07-25 04:16][Newbie]Icewolfz: granted i havnt bothered to fix my web tech desktop app as it has a custom display system and havnt gotten around to trying to make it work nicely with screen readers
[07-25 04:18][Newbie]Inome: This web tech desktop is a desktop-version of the web client?
[07-25 04:19][Newbie]Icewolfz: modified some
[07-25 04:19][Newbie]Inome: I'll be afk for a few minutes...
[07-25 04:19][Newbie]Icewolfz: but pretty much the same code
[07-25 04:19][Newbie]Inome: Ah I see.
[07-25 04:19][Newbie]Icewolfz: i chagned gui librarys and coded a custom display widget for more control and to reduce lag
[07-25 04:19][Newbie]Icewolfz: i wanted to experiment and decided to try electron
[07-25 04:19][Newbie]Icewolfz: to see how well web tech works as a desktop app
[07-25 04:20][Newbie]Icewolfz: not to bad outside of the extra overhead of app side and some extra memory compared to a normal app
[07-25 04:20][Newbie]Icewolfz: but probbaly simialr issues with any modern framework like java or c# as they use jit and such
[07-25 04:21][Newbie]Icewolfz: basicly node + chrome = app
[07-25 04:21][Newbie]Icewolfz: use chrome front end and node as a backend mixed with chrome web tech
[07-25 04:22][Newbie]Icewolfz: so you get the advantages of web along with native file system and such from node
[07-25 04:23][Newbie]Icewolfz: down side is you have to find or create your own gui stuff outside of basic web but there tons of librarys from bootstrap to jquery ui
[07-25 04:23][Newbie]Icewolfz: but it can be pretty powerful as vscode editor is using electron
[07-25 04:30][Newbie]Icewolfz: well i am off sleep is calling
[07-25 04:31][Newbie]Icewolfz: do not think anyone else is away so if you need help you can see if there i as help file
[07-25 04:31][Newbie]Icewolfz: will say probably typos or issues in help files as they are probably the most lacking due to getting side tracked with other stuff
