Atom Shell is now called Electron. Você pode aprender mais sobre o Electron e o que as pessoas estão fazendo com ele em sua nova home electronjs.org.
Electron é o shell de aplicação multi-plataforma originalmente construído para o Editor Atom lidar com a integração de loop de eventos Chromium/Node.js e APIs nativas.
When we got started, our goal wasn't just to support the needs of a text editor. We also wanted to create a straightforward framework that would allow people to use web technologies to build cross-platform desktop apps with all of the native trimmings.
So far, individual developers, early-stage startups, and large companies have built apps on Electron. They've created a huge range of apps — including chat apps, database explorers, map designers, collaborative design tools, and mobile prototyping apps.
If you've already gotten started, we'd love to chat with you about the apps you're building on Electron. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us more. You can also follow the new @ElectronJS Twitter account to stay connected with the project.
