Is it still a native app if I build a GTK app in JS? I just found out GJS is a thing. Interesting stuff.

@pseudoramble I think it compiles to native code.

Be aware, GJS isn't a node.js module. It's an entirely new runtime, with a different ecosystem.

I use node-gtk [1], because it's literally just an npm package, so you can use other npm packages with it. I also love it because I don't need to use GNOME builder. I actually triage issues for it.

There's also nodegui [2] for Qt5, but I haven't played with it.


@binyamin oh this looks pretty cool. I was aware it'd be a different runtime and such, but I like the looks of these too.
