Share one Electron instance for multiple apps 🤞  ↦

A tool for building lighweight Electron apps using a global Electron instance. Forget about 100MB for a Hello World app in Electron!

This works by creating a custom Electron distributable with a small app launcher which checks the app’s package.json and downloads corresponding version. Then the distributable can be used with electron-builder to build the app installers.

I’d like to see a few folks kick the tires on this and report back how it works. Looks like there’s issues on older verisons of macOS, for starters.
