Sorry for two posts in one day, tried checkout the Gist Desktop Apps you have.
I’ve done the following:
app new vue-desktop ProjectName
It launches a Desktop window but it is blank.
Then launching into VSCode with code . and pressing F5, it loads a web browser and not the desktop app, but the browser is also blank.
As an aside - what is your thoughts on Blazor desktop apps? Such as those in MobileBlazerBindings and the soon to be .NET 6 Blazor Hybrid apps?
Having spent a couple months with UWP, moving into WinUI 3.0 in Win32, both of which are an absolute nightmare, I’m looking for something I can develop mostly in C#, render in HTML, but still use some JS/TS libraries for drawing (Skia) when required.
I don’t believe in Blazor WASM, a metric tone of extra complexity just to run C# in a browser renderer which I consider self-defeating as IMO TypeScript + SPA fxs are much more productive. I’m also not a fan of C# in AOT environments due to productivity lost trying to diagnose runtime issues in iOS. I also very much dislike XAML so generally have not been a fan of C# for mobile or Desktop UIs.
If I need to run on iOS/Android + Desktop, Flutter is definitely my #1 pick, has a nicer reactive dev UX, better Lang for AOT + dart2js for Web, native skia rendering, a lot more resources devoted to it and a much larger ecosystem.
If I just needed to do a Desktop App I’d use our Vue Desktop template as we’ve done for ServiceStack Studio as Vue + .ts is much more productive than anything XAML, if I didn’t need a C# backend I’d use Electron.
