But what is the exact process? How do I convert it? I haven't used Node Web-kit before. And also, does it mean that I can sell the downloadable game on my website after converting it to the .exe format? karan3162013-11-28 10:00:09

1. RTFM! || SERIOUSLY, RTFM.
   Took me 2 minutes to find this.
2. File > Export project > (under desktop) Node-Webkit.
   Seriously, this is supposed to be common sense.
3. Why couldn't you?
   Do you not know how to upload files to a server? Never used ftp before?

Also, you are in the wrong section, you should have asked this under the "How do I....?" forum, in case the title doesn't make it obvious. As you can tell by the tone, i am upset about people asking things this simple without taking the time to read the menu - this is literally spam! /rant

Good luck to you, anyways.Stiivais2013-11-28 10:20:34

Select Export and scroll to last option, which is Node-Webkit. This will create the executable for you in a folder of your choosing.

There are a few files created in the export, so some form of extra deployment mechanism (packaging) may be required if selling from online.

Test the export as much as you can on different setups, then sell it and make lots of money :)
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
