    Flet enables developers to easily build realtime web, mobile and desktop apps in Python. No frontend experience required.

    Here you are: https://flet.dev - Electron alternative with Flutter-powered UI. We decided to focus on Python first to polish the idea, but Go and C# support are coming!

    NeutralinoJS supports this, apparently: https://github.com/neutralinojs/neutralinojs/issues/249
