Self-Running Apps With JXCore
Written by Alex Denham

The JXCore fork of Node.js has added the option for you to compile your Node.js apps into self-running apps.

 

 

The facility has been added to the latest beta of the Node.js fork, which is best known for the way it offers a faster performance for Node.js projects thanks to its multithreading mechanism.

According to the a post on its blog, JXcore b2.30 comes with a new level of application packaging that combines all the JavaScript, HTML etc. files into an executable package. Once you package a node application, you don’t need JXcore or anything else installed on the target system. The ability to create an executable overcomes the limitation of having to bundle the Node.js executable with your application files. The previous version of JXCore did let you package your app files into a single .jx file for protection, but you still had to include the Node.js executable to create a runnable app.

The exact details of the package depend on the platform on which you create it, though, so if you create it in Windows, you’ll get Windows executables, for example. If you want to create packages for other platforms, you’ll either need to carry out the same process under each operating system, or use the commercial version of the software. The blog post says: “We offer a paid cloud binary for the companies/individuals to compile their solution on a single developer machine for multiple operating systems/architectures at once."
