Astrodon

Desktop App Framework (not there yet!) for Deno, based on Tauri

Discord Server deno module deno compatibility


Features

  • Create webview windows with your own title and URL
  • Bidirectional communication between your frontend and backend
  • Compile your apps as executables and even make installers
  • And most of what you get with Deno, e.g, TypeScript out of the box...

A lot is still missing, but we will get there!

Demo

Note: Latest public release only supports Windows and Linux, MacOS is not supported. This will be fixed in the next release.

Run the demo:

deno run -A --unstable --reload https://deno.land/x/[email protected]/examples/hello_world/demo.ts

To-do

  • [x] Unit tests
  • [x] Cross-platform compiling (missing: Apple Silicon)
  • [ ] Typescript checking in the background (astrodon-build's Develop should manage this)
  • [x] Pass permission and arguments as flags and also put them in the executable metadata
  • [x] Organize project a little bit better (e.g move dependencies to deps.ts)
  • [x] A real-world app example
  • [ ] Update the templates (wip)
  • [x] Match deno_runtime version (and also things like Deno.build) with Deno's releases
  • [ ] Implement Web Workers
  • [ ] Schematize and create plugin system
  • [ ] Organize configs by usage hierarchy (e.g. global.icon -> build.icon)
  • [ ] Ability apps register custom system URI protocols (installer)
  • [ ] Add Cli command astrodon clean to remove cached runtimes
  • [x] Make Cli's command astrodon run also support HTTPs uris
    • [ ] Add support for common permission flags as CLI arguments

Plugins ideas

  • [ ] Cross process reactivity module (plugin)
  • [ ] Cross process store module (plugin)
  • [ ] Env variable manager and injection for builds (plugin)

Development

Requisites:

  • Install the tauri dependencies as indicated in Tauri's Guide.
  • Rust (stable toolchain)
  • Deno

Running both Deno and Rust tests:

deno task test
