Snippet from Wikipedia: Electron (software framework)

Electron (formerly known as Atom Shell) is a free and open-source software framework developed and maintained by GitHub. The framework is designed to create desktop applications using web technologies (mainly HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, though other technologies such as frontend frameworks and Web Assembly are possible) which are rendered using a flavor of the Chromium browser engine, and a backend using the Node.js runtime environment. Additionally, it also uses various APIs to allow things such as native integration with Node services, and an Inter-process communication module.

It was originally built for Atom. Electron is the main GUI framework behind several open-source projects including Atom, GitHub Desktop, Light Table, Visual Studio Code, WordPress Desktop, and Eclipse Theia.
