Open Source

A desktop player for Google Play Music
After waiting patiently for Google to release their own desktop player for Play Music I couldn't wait any more so I designed the simplest one I could. This project is based on the Electron framework for cross platform desktop applications. It currently has over 50,000 downloads and is growing every day.


2015 - CURRENT

Build cross platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS
Mostly thanks to the success of GPMDP I started contributing to the Electron project in early 2015, in July 2015 I was invited into the Electron Org on GitHub and continued supporting, improving and fixing Electron. Since then I have implemented a touch bar API, created a brand new build tool and helped out as many people as I can in the Electron Community. Electron is a new-found passion of mine and I hope to keep developing awesome things with it for a long time.
