I am opening this issue to keep track of the tasks need to be performed to properly migrate the electron-app to Vue.js.


jQuery is outdated and not fit for modern app development, it makes maintenance and development harder.

Some of the problems witht he current structure include:

  • It doesn't provide hotswapping (webpack) so the app has to be restarted for every single change
  • No template support, which makes it harder to debug and modify the ui.
  • No data reactivity which means that changes have to be tracked by hand.


  • Restructure and split the electron app to its own folder. e.g /app or /electron-app.
  • Rewrite and completely remove jQuery and plugins.
    • Break functionality to small testable components.
    • Write unit tests for the new components.
    • Use vuetify to replace most common components.
    • Rewrite table functionality with vuetify component and remove DataTables.
    • Rewrite dialogs and remove jConfirm.
    • Rewrite first run pulsate with pure CSS.
  • Ensure that the integration tests work.
  • Modify scripts to properly package the electron app.
  • Setup coverage for the electron-app
