@LefterisJP We should also evaluate if it is possible (it should be) to run this version without any need for electron directly from the browser.

So you can either connect to the remote rotki backend that runs on hosted using the electron app or you could access the rotki frontend directly from the hosted environment inside your browser.

@kelsos What would that require? Shouldn't be that hard to achieve, right? Essentially it should all work from the browser too.

Some parts might not work in the browser. For example, any node filesystem interactions might need some different handling in the browser. eg. CVS export of the report in the browser should be treated as a download.

Yeah that makes sense. But the first step would be to make the electron app connect to the backend in another machine and then we can see about browser support. As you point out there is gonna be subtle differences so we should go step by step.
