Though Imglab works offline once it is loaded in the browser, it'll be more handy if it can be installed on the machine without internet.

Using node js, electron and other helpful technologies, it's installer can be created. Discussion and PR are welcome for this thread.

Hi @amitguptagwl , may I recommend this awesome NW.js packager tool by jyapayne
https://github.com/jyapayne/Web2Executable
he also maintains a packager tool for Electron.js
https://github.com/jyapayne/Electrify

Web2Exe is very simple to use, it lets you specify almost all configurations you could think of for an app. This includes icons, windows settings (size) etc. It also exports to all major platforms:

I had tried it on imgLab and below you can see I am playing with the offline app:
imglab_ 14

As with all packaged js apps, there's no need to install anything, just need to release/ship as a package like shown below. User can double click on the .desktop or .exe (or equivalent)

I hope this helps ;)

@Alvin-Voo I tried Electrify which didn't work. I believe because it is not node.js project. But Web2Executable worked perfectly.
