Just a headsup - Tauri does NOT ship with a nodejs backend. You may sideload a nodejs based binary, but in its normal (and recommended shape), it is a 100% rust backend and HTML/CSS/JS shipped to the frontend.

I think maybe the clarification needed is that you MAY use a nodejs based harness for building your distributables (like vue, svelte, etc.) but that is not required. At the moment we are still using nodejs to run the HMR server and rig cargo for building the final app, but we are planning on releasing a pure rust version of the CLI and are looking into actually making a pure binary CLI / Bundler... At any rate - thanks for the great article!

Hi! First of all, thanks a lot for the good job on Tauri!
I edited the article reflecting your comment. Really thanks again to you and all the people behind this software. We need more of this in the Rust community: projects well thought of, and that run out of the box.
Keep up with the good job!
