In this chapter, I did my best to introduce you to the use of NW.js Native UI APIs. We played with windows, menus, tray icons, and many more OS-related functions. I often used a cookbook style because I firmly believe that the best way to learn is by example, the way we learned when we were little kids. Unfortunately, I could not dwell on all the APIs, but I tried to deal with those that I consider most important for the purposes of the book.

Now that you have a decent understanding of how to interact with your application GUI, we can move to the next topic—Node.js. You're probably already experts in the field but, in the context of NW.js programming, Node.js must be approached in a slightly different way than usual. You will learn how to target and deal with path processing on multiple platforms, use modules, and pass objects between WebKit and Node.js. Let's not waste any more time and move on to Chapter 3, Leveraging the Power of Node.js.
