Updated 2018-02-25:

Switched to use Electron 1.8 beta. Ongoing discussions can be found at Add FreeBSD support to electron #3797 electron/electron - GitHub

qbit@github, who maintains OpenBSD's port of Node.js, tried building an Electron port last year without success. https://deftly.net/posts/2017-06-01-measuring-the-weight-of-an-electron.html

Still fixing the code and conducting tests. Electron/Atom build process is extremely convoluted and complex, so there is no estimated time for this.
