I use Tauri currently to build desktop apps. Tauri wraps over Solid web UI.
Wails is great too if you like Go.
I try to minimize amount of Electron apps I run on my mac as I find them wasteful in how they bundle entire chrome JS engine with every app. Hopefully soon, I won't be running any more Electron apps on my computer.
I also use SwiftUI to build certain native windows when tauri/web stack is not enough.
osx-sign is nice for code signing the app.
