Hi everyone, It's been four years that I'm working with java and java swing, it looks like using java swing has drastically reduced in big companies, now I'm looking forward to enhance my GUI knowledge with Electron what do you think? suggest me if there is more usable GUI with different language.
Share your experience if you are an Electron developer, and please put some Electron pdf link, website, and other resources.

If you need Webview, Electron might be the best.

There is also JxBrowser and CefJava, where I haven't really tried.

Otherwise, try Qt, or JavaFx.

If you don't want to bundle Webview (which you should), try Golang's webview/webview.

Thank you for you reply! I would definitely search about Webview, and JXBrowser, but frankly I'm impressed with Electron as big companies using it. Do you have any pdf book, or website to learn Electron?

idk, but indeed, if I had to recommend, I would say Electron, as its API is very deep (at least IMO).

Basics would be Documentation | Electron. I was into setting up web server inside Electron in the past, but now I should care more about security.

OKAY, I gone through the documentation, but for a beginner this documentation is so hard to understand. And there is one PDF book in the entire google I found which is same as documentation.
