Is it possible to access the underlying features of nw.js (node-webkit) in a CEP panel? For example, nw.js exposes the Chrome extension API to view cookies. 

https://nwjs.readthedocs.io/en/latest/References/Chrome%20Extension%20APIs/

 

The CEP-Resources docs indicate that CEP 11.1 uses nw.js 0.50.1. https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/CEP-Resources/blob/master/CEP_11.x/Documentation/CEP%2011.1%20HTML%20Ex...

 

Thanks so much for any guidance.

Sounds encouraging; haven't tried it. Let us know what you find, in your testing!

I see that window.chrome does not have the properties that nw.js affords:

window.chrome
// > {loadTimes: f, csi: f}
window.chrome.cookies
// > undefined

 I poked around a fair amount to see if nw.js's version of chrome is stashed away somewhere but haven't come up with anything.

nw.js features are not available as in CEP there is no global nw object that exposes the nw window api, it's disabled/removed and instead the global CEP object is provided which provides Adobe Host apis, you can't neither use nw dom features like nwdirectory.
