I made an electron app in 4 lines…

nativefier "http://musicforprogramming.net/" -n "musicforprogramming"
cd musicforprogramming-linux-x64/
sudo chmod +x musicforprogramming
./musicforprogramming

Motivation

I like music, but don’t like music in browser tabs. Basically because i have it open all the time, I want to find and control it easily, and I don’t want it cluttering up an area that might be soley focused on work.

I discovered some neat apps for google play, and wanted to see if there was one for my other go to, musicforprogramming. There wasn’t, so I just casually googled how to convert a page into an electron app and OMFG!

Solution

This post and this one helped iron out some kinks and now I can launch programming music right from my VS code terminal!

vs code and an electron app of musicforprogramming made with nativefier
