The Convolv Desktop

A quad-console, desktop application based on the Convolv web app. It is built for the Electron runtime and uses the electron-boilerplate as a development platform.


Convolv is a desktop application that provides four independant consoles and a central dashboard for the analysis of data. Built with vanilla JS and incorporating more than a dozen open-source libraries, the application allows a user to import data, perform numerical analyses and chart the results, both to the console's chart window as well as to a common dashboard shared by all four consoles.

Quick Start

This project uses the awesome electron-boilerplate, so please refer to that repo for tips and notes regarding building and developing. To quickly launch the app on your desktop in development mode, just enter the following commands:

git clone
cd convolv-desktop
npm install
npm start

This assumes that you have Node.js already installed.

Build the Application

A pre-built setup executable for Windows is available in the dist folder. Simply download and launch the setup binary to install the Convolv application on your PC (note that this app is unsigned and you will need to grant permission for it to be installed). For Mac and Linux users, or for PC users who would prefer to build their own setup executable, assuming you have already followed the steps in the Quick Start, just run the following additional command:

npm run release

This will create a dist folder in your local project directory which will contain the necessary installation file for your computer.


Number Crunching

Besides having built-in support for the powerful Math.js library, additional features have been incorporated including:

  • Simple waveform generator: square, pulse, triangular, etc.
  • Polynomial string construction for latex output
  • Common signal processing algorithms including (more are in development):
    fft(): fast and discrete Fourier transform
    ifft(): fast and discrete inverse Fourier transform
    fsps(): partial sums of Fourier series
    conv(): convolution
    deconv(): deconvolution (polynomial division)
    corr(): cross and auto correlation
    filter(): a 1D transposed direct form II digital filter structure


We've also included the awesome Highcharts library to provide support for the following chart types:

  • line
  • curve
  • log
  • sample
  • area
  • bar
  • column
  • polar
  • pie


Data can be entered manually or imported/exported as:

  • csv from a local drive
  • JSON data from a URL (support for tokens is available)

In addition, JSON data imported from a URL can be displayed in a datatable.
