I assume the package viewer for offline viewing is based on a framework., but which one?

The reason for my question is that by using Electron one can selectively update some elements of an application.
This means that a user is not required to download the entire package each time something has been updated.
I am not sure about other frameworks.
As long as the package is small, re-downloading everything is not a big deal.
Not so with large or multiple tours. In the latter case, being able to selectively updating the package would be greatly beneficial.

The desktop app is based on Electron, the mobile app on Flutter. At the moment we don't use any special update mechanisms for the app, and packages are stored locally anyway, and don't run thru the update process.

Thank you Thomas,

My question was referring to my own data (in addition to tiles), html, css and js files, which are many. Being able to update those would be greatly beneficial.

Best,
Franco
