Electron Native Apps

Electron allows for creating cross platform, native applications that run on the Node.js runtime. Today, native applications can be created with a consistent set of tools including Javascript, HTML, and CSS. Electron, developed by Github, was orginally known as Atom Shell as it powered the homegrown text editor created at Github, Atom.
