Hey,

in the first chapter you have mentioned that Slack was built using electron, which is not 100% correct as the Mac version was built using MacGap https://github.com/MacGapProject which is a different project than electron, and does not use chromium nor nodejs.

This was mentioned in their acknowledgement document, which can be found at "Slack/Contents/Resources/Acknowledgements.rtf" file .

Hi,

Thanks for your email, I will reach out to clarification as Slack are shown as one of the apps featured on Electron's website, as well as the fact that they mention it in their job ad for a Desktop Application Engineer: https://slack.com/jobs/69902/desktop-application-engineer. It may be that the Windows app is built with Electron as opposed to the Mac App.

Regards,

Paul Jensen
