Stop wrapping your website in Electron and calling it an app challenge twenty twenty
@uint8_t I'm so torn. I like programming to be accessible, and portability is good, but we really need the browser engines to be more performant and less resource-hungry if every app is going to run their own browser sandbox.
Also I'm concerned accessibility falls by the wayside here.
@annika I'm not convinced by the accessibility argument when I look at most websites or Electron apps
it's possible to do it properly but it's easier to do it badly
"Accessibility" as in, making app development possible for more people: Having a "lingua Franca" that allows for both web and app dev is *potentially* a good thing.
"Accessibility" as in a11y: I've run into issues with Voice Commands on macOS in Electron apps, and I wonder how many Electron apps make accommodations for vision/hearing/other needs.
@annika Hint: “a11y” is not an accessible way to spell “accessibility”
