electron-remote - Execute JavaScript in remote Electron processes, but more betterer

  •    Javascript

electron-remote provides an alternative to Electron's remote module based around Promises instead of synchronous execution. It also provides an automatic way to use BrowserWindows as "background processes" that auto-scales based on usage, similar to Grand Central Dispatch or the .NET TPL Taskpool. Remote is super convenient! But it also has some downsides - its main downside is that its action is synchronous. This means that both the main and window processes will wait for a method to finish running. Even for quick methods, calling it too often can introduce scroll jank and generally cause performance problems.

react-ionize - A React renderer for building your entire Electron app

  •    Javascript

react-ionize is a library which lets you build the "non-browser" parts of an Electron app using React components to manage your application's state. Electron applications consist of two types of process: a main process which manages the lifecycle of the application, and several renderer processes, which display webpages which comprise the application's GUI. While it's fairly common to use React and ReactDOM to build an HTML/CSS/JS interface in the renderer process, react-ionize runs in the main process, managing things like window size/position, menu contents, and application-wide events.
