Electron Viewer

Electron is an exciting technology that allows developers to build cross-platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Visual Studio Code, Slack, Discord, and Skype all use the Electron framework to create their native desktop applications.

The HOOPS Web Platform (HWP) is a powerful web technology. What would it look like powering a native desktop CAD viewer? We’ve created an Electron-based demo that uses the HWP's server-side CAD converter to read and load files. The application then uses HWP’s client-side web viewer to visualize and interact with the 3D data. The project is capable of running as a native application on your desktop operating system of choice.

The benefits are immediate. A development team could maintain a single codebase for their web, Windows, Linux, and Mac applications.
