GitHub user Guangyuan Yang has successfully built Electron on FreeBSD. As the Electron team has shown no interest in targeting FreeBSD or even including the changes in the official core, this promises to be an alternative way to use applications like Atom, Visual Studio Code and lots of others. It may open the way to create ports for those applications. He's already working on a port:

While I'm not particularly partial to JavaScript-based desktop applications, they do enable cross-platform availability that would otherwise be harder to achieve.
