React, JSON API, Drupal 8 - My choice for a desktop application??

Drupal Camp Asheville 2024 - July 12th-14th

Start Time

We will be delving into a new frontend ecosystem and incorporating Drupal 8 as a backend. Now, imagine forking your favorite text editor to customize it, using javascript! We will be using Electron for rapid desktop development using web technologies.

The example project we will be building together is a simple FTP client which uses Drupal to store the different FTP accounts as a "cloud" so that we can jump between devices while keeping our account data in sync.
