Electron is a nice development tool.
Electron is not bad, the situation is bad. The situation where Electron is a good choice is pretty bad.
We can say bad things about programmers, rant about how we can’t write code anymore, how frontend web developers are insane and npm is considered harmful. But it seems like on the macro level this is just a transition period. Some day we’ll get to the point where programmers would build products for people, and, hopefully, we’ll think of it as “people are building products for people”.
