Some screen captures of the implemented features...

Online demo

The app has been deployed and you can test it right here!. Whenever a feature is only available under Electron the UI element will be disabled or a corresponding popup message will be displayed. But most of the time we will try to make the feature available online.

Windows, Linux and MacOS versions

Since most of the features don't need to access desktop capabilities, Electron is actually not absolutely required. However, having a desktop application gives nice things like:

  • global OS shortcuts
  • dedicated OS window
  • ability to select exactly where a file will be stored whenever the SPA offers a Save As... button
  • etc.

Again feel free to try out the online demo before trying to package the Electron app for your platform :-) since you will enjoy:

  • live updates
  • usage as a progressive web app (PWA)
  • or just add bookmark(s) to the specific feature(s) of the app you use the most

Builded desktop releases

The following installers (may be old release in some cases) are available under releases folder:

  • Windows: releases/Web Toolbox Setup <version>.exe
  • Linux: releases/Web Toolbox-<version>.AppImage
  • MacOS: releases/Web Toolbox-<version>.dmg

Build releases from source

To build a desktop version just get the source code and run the following command, which will package the installers for all the platforms:

npm install -g yarn
npm install
npm run electron:build:all

This creates the following installers:

  • Windows: build/Web Toolbox Setup <version>.exe
  • Linux: build/Web Toolbox-<version>.AppImage
  • MacOS: build/Web Toolbox-<version>.dmg

Project detail

Also bootstrapped with Create React App with --typescript option. On the top of it, the following features have been added with relatively small changes:
