Excellent, any idea what's the app download size? Example for Hello World app?

@benjif what I mean is final download size with the qt and node runtime dependencies.

@prakis I was asking myself the same question, but I think it should be way lighter since QT should be lighter than Chromium. But if anyone has an example I'd like to know as well.

@prakis @tomflitterman I actually tried it out and it seems impressive The app was simple, it displayed an animated gif photo, platform- win built project size - 80mb exe size - 55mb compressed rar size- 21 mb cpu usage- mostly 0 to 0.1 , max - 0.3 memory usage - 20 to 25 mb hope it helps

I'd be very interested in this esp. for CPU & Memory reasons. Are there any benchmarks available?

@ofarukcaki Maybe you are missing something, you would need to install visual studio 2017+ with "for desktop dev" setting and microsoft sdk included. Also you would need cmake. If you are on windows. text me if you have any issues
