A Node.js wrapper for the Windows.ApplicationModel.Background WinRT namespace, compatible with Windows 8.1 APIs.
Using this module, you'll be able to consume the Windows.ApplicationModel.Background API directly from Node.js.
The API exposed by this module is (almost) the same as the API that is listed in: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/Windows.ApplicationModel.Background.aspx
The only difference in the API is in the way that asynchronous methods and events are used. (See https://github.com/NodeRT/NodeRT#ConsumingNodeRT for more details)
- Visual Studio version 2015 and above. (Express Desktop versions also work!)
