on android adding a webpage to the home screen is convenient and makes dashboards feel like native apps. Not so much on desktop.
Therefore, I created a VERY simple electron app, which basically is really just a chromium instance.
However, it has a tray icon and if you close it, it will minimize to that tray.
Just thought I share this.
Maybe in the future one could add things like notifications or more menu options etc.
Of course, one should add some packaging/bundling...
By the way, this is something different than the electron node-red related projects I have found where also Node-RED is bundled into the electron app as well.
Should work with node-red-dashboard, uibuilder, node-red-contrib-component-dashboard
I have only tested on ubuntu. Maybe one can test on mac or windows, since getting the tray to work with ubuntu was quite a hassle (therefore it also has an old electron version, since in the current version, there is a bug such that tray icons don't work in older ubuntu versions)
