“ToDesktop saved us a ton of time. Why would we want to build our own Electron infrastructure when we should be focusing on our app instead.”

You write the application.
We do the infrastructure.

You wouldn't build your own analytics or hosting platform. So why would you build your own desktop infrastructure?

Customer Story

Sunsama wanted confidence in their build and release process.

"It's a major relief to know that updates can be rolled out with a single terminal command and autoupdates will always work (with proper code signing)."

With no extra work, Travis has delivered a customer-ready desktop app faster than he could have ever hoped. Now his team can focus on their application code and not worry about the ongoing effort of maintaining desktop app infrastructure.
