Hey guys. Splashify was my Christmas side project this year. I wanted to build a desktop app using Electron. I also love beautiful desktop wallpapers. So using the Unsplash API to fetch stunning photos to use as desktop wallpapers seemed to make sense. Would love some feedback from the community. Let me know what you think!

@gilbitron Thank you! I will check it out. I have never heard of Electron and I will have to take a look at that too. :)

@gilbitron Thank you. I would like to find a way for my customers to have the files I sell installed onto their computer from a desktop app or desktop menu app.

Right now my customers have to download each file package they buy and install each one. Can Electron help out in this? Thank you :)

@deysonortiz Electron is just a framework that allows you to build desktop apps using web technologies (e.g. HTML, Javascript, CSS etc.). You can build almost any kind of app you want using Electron, however you may need to hire a developer to help you out if you want to build something complex.

@gilbitron Thank you! Should I find a developer that specializes in Electron?

@deysonortiz Only if you want to use Electron to build an app 😉

@deysonortiz @gilbitron Electron is a way to wrap your HTML project into an executable file using Chrome's rendering engine.
