I think you'd be best to go with Node.js
It's very portable (unlike Python, the packages are per-project so they go with you), and it's cross - platform and versatile.

I tried node.js for another unrelated project once, and I was turned off from it when I tried installing node-sass but couldn't without admin privileges.

I might give it another shot though. It seems pretty attractive as long as it works in my environment.

Edit: after playing with node some more, I think that plus electron may actually be exactly what I need!

Yeah Electron is great for cross-platforming. Good luck!

Based on what you're describing, I agree with Electron. It's incredibly portable, you end up with a small executable that you can run anywhere.

Just be careful about entering npm hell. Just cause you're making an electron app doesn't mean you need to start out with 4Gb worth of dependencies. Start as slim as you can.
