NodeRT: Using native Windows features from Node.js and Electron

Sign in to queue

Description

Cross-platform JavaScript-based technologies such as Node.js and Electron have gained traction within the developer community in recent years. While these technologies enable a “write once, run everywhere” approach, in certain instances, a deeper integration with the hosting operating system may be required. In this talk, we describe a recent collaboration between the Partner Catalyst team at Microsoft and the Slack Desktop team, which introduces native Windows notification APIs to the Electron platform. The core of the solution is comprised of NodeRT, which exposes the entire Windows Runtime stack to Node.js and Electron. The talk features a deep dive into the workings of NodeRT and how it was built, and demonstrates how it can be used in your Node.js and Electron apps.
