Q1K3: A JavaScript Homage to Quake in Just 13KB — It’s (another) quiet week for big JavaScript news, so we’re going with the fun angle and looking at a popular entrant to the latest JS13KGames contest that ended this week. No winners yet but this Quake clone is amazing given the limitations, and takes me right back to 1996 when I installed it off a magazine cover disc (when the demo even then was 10 megabytes).

Electron 14.0.0 Released — The latest major version of the popular cross-platform desktop app framework is here. It’s moving to an eight week stable release schedule, so Electron 15 is due in just three weeks.. but for now you get Chromium 93, Node.js 14.17, and V8 9.3 support, experimental cookie encryption support, and a few removals (such as the remote module).

Neutralino 2.7: Portable, Lightweight Desktop App Framework — Think Electron (above) but rather than including a Chromium distribution with every app, it uses the local platform’s built-in ‘webview.’ This equals (much) smaller, faster apps, though you then have to be aware of each webview’s different quirks.
