Proton Native – Create Native Desktop Applications Powered by React

Unlike Electron this one results in true Native Components being outputted.

Proton Native does the same to desktop that React Native did to mobile. Build cross-platform apps for the desktop, all while never leaving the React eco-system. Popular React packages such as Redux still work.

import React, { Component } from 'react';

import { render, Window, App, Button } from 'proton-native';

class Example extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
        <Window title="Example" height={300} width={300} menuBar={false}>
          <Button stretchy={false} onClicked={() => console.log('Hello')}>

render(<Example />);

On Windows the code above renders to this:

And in case you were wondering: yes, it plays nice with existing React libraries such as Redux 🙂
