Through these past months, I’ve read a lot the LightDM documentation. Now I’m kind confident that I could create all the greeters I want in any time. That’s why I created another one!
Why another web based greeter?
Why not? I mean, options are great! If you want to use a greeter with Python running behind it, that’s okay, but if you want a bit more performance, Nody Greeter is meant for that.
Node.js is fast, really fast, not as much as C/C++, but in contrast to Python, it’s a great improvement.
Check this video to see the difference.
Note this may vary. Sometimes web-greeter is faster, sometimes nody-greeter, but in general I could say nody-greeter is more responsive.
Is there any difference?
Practically, there are no differences, both
nody-greeter do the same. Their API is the same, so every theme working in
web-greeter should work without problems in
Although, there are some differences:
- Nody Greeter is faster than Web Greeter
- As Web Greeter is interpreted, its python dependencies should be always present. Update Python and it breaks. Nody Greeter is built with Electron, so no dependencies.
