Was wondering, since each renderer (tab) in electron is it's own process, could we have a manager that wrapped that process and provided a tab bar which allowed you to have multiple open projects simultaneously and switch between them
Dont think electron have built in tabs, so each render process would spawn its own window..
Whether we use tabs inside a single project depends on how we'd like to represent the information of said project, about dependencies, forks, wizards etc.. IMO if we do it like that - that is one tab for dependency list, one for forks, another for (maybe) generators ("create new Aurelia view/route/component") - we should go with the "one window per project" approach.
But I'm biased since I like having a window per project in Atom. :)
thing is, that's just the UI - we can spin that however we want after we get the bits in place
.feature()'s. Although we'd need JSPM 0.17 for its linking workflow
well, there's always multi-window - which also works, but I kind of saw the left hand navigation (in the absence of a file tree) to be the main navigation around these areas
According to a respected author from electron category (I am going through his course on https://www.pluralsight.com/) the most important thing about electron design is to constantly remind yourself that you are creating a desktop app. I will explain more in the issue I am about to create
