  • GitHub repo nativefier

    Project mention: Native Linux Twitch Application Release | reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-04-17

    In fact, the version you just released is not up to date. It's using nativefier v42.2.1 (while the latest version is v43.0.2), so you're already missing on a bunch of security fixes and potential RCEs.

  • GitHub repo Wails

    Create desktop apps using Go and Web Technologies.

    Project mention: Building a Configuration Generator for Mikrotiks Using Wails and React | dev.to | 2021-04-15

    Before attempting to build a solution in "Wails," I created a GUI using Fyne. Fyne was easy to build with, and I could make all of the desktop components using Go. Unfortunately, The legacy laptops I have to support don't have a recent graphics driver that would work with OpenGL, so I had to find another solution. Wails is that solution. Wails is a cross-platform desktop application framework that uses a web-view and web technologies to create a User Interface (UI). Now I can use React, the most popular framework for building UIs, and not rely on Go's fledgling GUI support. The fact that Wails uses mshtml, a win32 API that hasn't seen an update since Internet Explorer version 11 (IE11), was a feature in my case.

    But it AutoUpdater.NET(https://github.com/ravibpatel/AutoUpdater.NET) does quite the same. It only looks at your own server instead of github. You should be able to get an idea of how it works and how to implement it using github instead.

  • GitHub repo Windows-10-Toast-Notifications

    Python library to display Windows 10 Toast Notifications

    Project mention: Running a Python script every X minutes on Windows 10 | dev.to | 2021-01-05

    Recently I had a requirement of implementing a web scraping tool to identify changes in a website. It was the virtual learning environment website of my university where I wanted to create a desktop notification whenever our examination results were uploaded to the website. I started by writing a Python script that checks the website and creates a notification on Windows if updates are detected. I used the Python Beautiful Soup library to parse the HTML content of the web page and the Windows 10 Toast Notifications library to generate Windows 10 toast notifications. These tools made the implementation pretty simple.
