A year ago I wrote Neutralinojs 2019 roadmap saying about some key milestones for the last year, it’s happy to announce that we were able to complete around ~90% of them.
What is new with Neutralinojs?
- Mac Os support
- Logging feature
- Support for multiple html files
- Some useful native features (Full screen mode, file pickers etc.)
Also, I was planning to do an event about Neutralinojs and that goal also was accomplished. I was able to do 2 sessions with the well known Colombo JS Meetup by touching several versions of Neutralinojs (v1.2.0 and v1.3.0)
Some highlights from the community
- Issuehunt raised $300 https://issuehunt.io/r/neutralinojs/neutralinojs
- ~1.3k stargazers from Github
- Developers started using Neutralinojs with their small app ideas (eg: Wireguard GUI Client)
- Neutralinojs was mentioned in many blogs, forums and some YouTube videos.
Milestones for 2020
Windows version still uses IE, also we are still trying to add Edge browser component instead to overcome the issue with polyfills and latest ECMAScript specifications.
A participant from one of our session mentioned that Neutralinojs mobile will be great too. I am also really interested in that idea. Hopefully there will be nice experiments ahead 🧐.
Furthermore, there are some discussions going on regarding rewriting Neutralino into single codebase and also about libuv integration. Whereas those ideas are still not finalized, indeed we welcome you all to talk about future of this project in our slack channel.
Stackoverflow has some questions with neutralinojs tag already. Whereas, we would like to see more people posting questions. Therefore, I am having idea to host an online Hackathon with awesome prizes. Stay tuned!
Get started today, use Neutralinojs along with your next desktop app idea!
