I’m just assessing whether I should do an Electron app or command line app with Lumo right now. What are some bundle sizes that people are seeing with Lumo command line apps.

@grounded_sage if you ship cljs code, there's no bundle size?

grounded_sage12:10:26

I want to create a client side app that provides access to the file system. Ideally cross platform. I’m just wondering if it is possible to do easily without taking on Electron which is a huge bundle size and cpu hog. @pesterhazy

I guess I meant with the use of Nexe

pesterhazy12:10:25

Well will it have a ui?

grounded_sage12:10:18

Doesn’t necessarily need a UI. If was needed was just going to open up a browser and use that. Other people could access through browser. After doing a lot of searching it looks like it might be best just using Electron.

grounded_sage12:10:07

Was looking at Racket, Rust, Erlang/Elixir, Node as options. But it doesn’t seem there is a clear way to do cross platform applications the way I would like.

Electrino and Nodekit look like what I want but not sure if it’s worth betting on them.

I've use lumo with electron, but only to interact with lumo trough electron. Bundle sizes are not a problem in my case and Electron is just so straightforward and nice to work with.
