Well, I've actually developed C'YaPass as (all links are GitHub repos where I provide Open Source):
1. native Android via Java [^]
2. native Android via Kotlin[^]
3. native iOS via Swift[^]
4. native WinForms [^] app via .NET Windows Forms ala Visual Studio
5. UWP [^] (but kind of gave up)
6. HTML5 (Canvas), JavaScript, Bootstrap (web app[^])

So because I had already built it using HTML5 / JavaScript / Bootstrap I was very interested in if it were possible to run it as a "native" desktop app on multiple platforms via Electron so it was a great learning experience. Also, I think that OSes are now Commodities so it would be cool to "write an app once and have it run anywhere". But that's an old dream of everyone. Big Grin | :-D

It's all about learning for me and about really determining if Cross-Platform is a realistic thing.

Also, I would write it as a native Linux app, but I don't have the UI skills there -- probably need Qt or some such.
