This is a good tutorial if you want to know how a desktop application using Electron should be built. Example app is very basic and simple so instructions are focused on essential points. However, the author highlights typical pitfalls when it comes to different platforms so this tutorial basically covers for all 3 platforms (mac, win and linux). One thing disappointing is when you wrap your files for distribution for linux platform, application isn't executable from nautilus. You can run it via command line but obviously no one wants do that. This seems a bug on Electron and at this point of writing I didn't find any solution for it.
