Hi Steve,

Welcome to the ranch

I have recently started a small project with electron and it looks a really cool piece of technology.
At this moment I started simple and I am using Vanilla JS for the front part but I would like to introduce a framework such as vue or react or something (not clear yet). Does your book cover how to integrate third parties into the application? I mean, to have a production ready build using webpack, rollup or other technology.

Mostly true, but you can create client side applications also using electronjs.
Well, since ES6 it is becoming more and more popular ;)
Hi J.D. Isaacks and welcome to the ranch,

What's the target audience of this book? Is it for expert JavaScript developers or can be understood by newbies also?

Thanks for the reply, I didnt know about that and sounds very interesting. I am not new to java and work regularly with javascript so I am used to functional programming.

Hi there,

Apparently reactive programming is like the next "big thing", I just started an angular training recently and the teacher talked about it and we are going to start using it a bit so all my knowdledge about it is limited to a couple of articles on the web.
Is the book meant for "greenhorns" like me? And do you use any library such as Rx or others to explain the different patterns?

Thanks and cheers
Hi Pierre,

Thanks for the reply and the careful explanation.

Hi Pierre and welcome to the Ranch,

As the title states, my question is who is the target audience of your book. I mean, does it start from the basics? I have Java knowledge, I have been working with it for years but I haven't touch anything about lambdas and functional programming. Will it suit me?

First of all welcome to the Ranch

My question is, is the book oriented to UI testing or is it API focused? Do you sepcifically explain something about certain frameworks/libraries (if yes, which ones?)

Sagar got it right, first thing is to add the event to the icons, then you would have to open a window, I don't know if that Kinetic library has that, otherwise you will have to create it yourself using other tools like jQuery UI

About the drag and drop you will have to look into the Kinectic library, it seems to have some DD implementation but you will have to read the docs to check how to do it
With the provided code I don't get any error, I do get what you said in IE, that the file cannot be downloaded.
If you don't want to show your code we cannot really help you, the only thing I can tell you is that this code works in IE:

So I don't know what you are doing wrong or why it does not work because the only thing you show is one line without any context of what you are including whatsoever.
Are you sure your href is correct? Is your file deployed in the server?

Show us the code or create a little fiddle that shows the problem.

I hope not (and I am pretty sure it is not possible), I don't want any webpage reading files in my system.
For telephones it works differently because you have to install the application and give it permissions to access the system, it is not a webapp anymore. See this post in stack overflow
