Book Description

Windows Desktop App Creation with node-webkit is an introduction to Node-webkit. This powerful Open Source development environment combines Node.js and Google's Chromium technologies. This step-by-step guide to creating standalone desktop programs for Windosw OS computers includes detailed set-up and installation instructions and is packed with useful code you can directly use in your own applications. Node-webkit allows you to write desktop apps like Web pages, with full HTML5 , CSS3 and Javascript. At the same time the built-in Node engine gives you access to literally thousands of node-modules which provide solutions to almost any programming challenge you can conceive. While node-webkit is available for Windows, Mac and Linux desktop systems, and the programming techniques covered apply to all three platforms, this guide's focus is on using Window's native GUI components like the system Clipboard, Tray, Menus, file dialogs and drag-and-drop file usage. This eBook serves both as a beginning tutorial and comprehensive reference for Node-webkit. With it you should be writing programs on your Windows computer within hours and with no software costs, restrictions or royalties,
even if you produce games or other commercial programs. The eBook's subtitle is "From idea to .exe, without Geek-speak or Techno-jargon." With it, your only limitations are your ideas, themselves.

2.0 out of 5 stars mabye for beginner September 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is about absolute basic of developing with node-webkit. And only for windows machines. In electronic version ugly font is used and there are no images. I read it in 60 minutes and didn't get much new informations. (I'm using node-webkit for 3-4 months).

So if you are windows user and don't know anything about node-webkit, buy it. Otherwise it is useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks good to me April 12, 2014

I just downloaded it and scanned it, so take that into account as you read my review. I have been building an app with node-webkit for a couple weeks. The main programmer behind it, Roger Wang, has done a good job putting what you need to know on the web. Also, I have posted questions to the news group, and gotten good answers. But still, I find it useful to read a "narrative" coverage of any new technology, whenever I start working with it. (I have 30 years programming experience. This Javascript/html/css stuff is fairly new to me.)

This is the only book I am aware of, of its kind. The author writes clearly and engagingly. The material covered is appropriate. I think he covered most of what you need to get started.

The main thing is, this book may very well help you to see how the different parts interrelate, and support each other.

Did not use it. More instructions need to be sent with the introductory material. It should be come clearer later.
