yes please.. love the simplicity of this, i've trialled the current npm install && npm start mode of the app for windows.. but would love a windows app so I dont have to script the commands and set the script to auto-start everytime.

Hey Chintan, when you do npm install && npm start does the app work as expected?

the app comes up.. shows the heatmap just fine with the keystrokes and mouse clicks etc.. but the terminal where I do the npm start obviously has to remain open and running as that is where the parent process starts the app from with the electron . command.. so upon closing the terminal, the app dies too.. and so windows users would have to script out the commands in a script which they’d then set to start at start up or something.. however, I haven’t yet looked at the source code to see if it’d share the same db across multiple starts.. which is why the request of the windows app.. love the simplicity of the app though 🀩

I'm glad you liked the app, I'll let you know as soon as I publish a Windows version!
