Last week, I took part in the Google Developer Day held in Beijing. The Angular team introduced their new Angular 2. Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications. This tutorial shows how to configure and use Angular 2 web components with the Electron framework for creating native cross-platform applications with web technologies. As recommended by the Angular team, TypeScript will be used throughout this tutorial. TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.
