So far, we have only built web applications with Vue 3. In this chapter, we will build a photo management desktop app with the Vue Electron plugin. We will learn how to easily build cross-platform desktop apps with Electron and Vue. This is useful because we can build cross-platform desktop apps without much additional effort. This will save us time and get us good results.
In this chapter, we will focus on the following topics:
- Understanding components
- Creating a project with Vue CLI Plugin Electron Builder
- Adding a photo submission UI
- Adding a photo display
- Adding routing to the Photo Manager app
- Using our app with photo management APIs
