I contemplated the option of building an app that will run on a ARM single board computer (armv7l armhf) such as the new Raspberry Pi 2 using nw.js or atom-shell.

My first research tells me that that might not be possible. Is that a fact and what are my options?

There is unofficial ARM binary for NW.js here: https://github.com/nwjs/nw.js/issues/1151#issuecomment-77812383

  • Please vote up the question if you found it legit! Thank you so much for finding this. I hope official release will come soon. I will try this one in the meantime. Cheers mate!

I have just created a repository with the node-webkit binary port that runs on Raspbian, tested and working on Raspberry Pi 1 and Raspberry Pi 3 so it is ARMv6 and ARMv7 compatible.
