Electron (formerly known as Atom Shell[5]) is an open-source framework created and maintained by GitHub.[6] It allows for the development of desktop GUI applications using front and back end components originally developed for web applications: Node.js runtime for the backend and Chromium for the frontend. Electron is the main GUI framework behind several notable open-source projects including GitHub's Atom[7] and Microsoft's Visual Studio Code[8]source code editors, the Tidal music streaming service desktop application and the Light Table[9]IDE, in addition to the freeware desktop client for the Discord chat service.
