    You can find a lot of those online. I personally like Pencil, it's a free, open source tool that you install on your PC. If you'd like something web-based, there are tools like Balsamiq. However, if you're comfortable doing something in Paint or PowerPoint or drawing it by hand, that's totally fine. You can use anything you like. The only thing that matters is that you have a clear, understandable plan that you can show your developer.

    Project mention: Electron to native hardware | | 2021-03-17

    We use node-serialport for USB serial communications. It's included in the transport manager renderer process. The installation guide and docs should be good enough to get you started. Hopefully serialport has prebuilds for the combination of system and electron version you're trying. We had to setup an internal prebuilds system and CDN for our app since we'd often find ourselves ahead of the prebuilt versions for node-serialport. Alternatively you can build from source.
