Poddr – podcast client built with Electron and Angular

Memory Comparison

ps_mem is a small utility that reliably reports how much memory is consumed by an application. It’s a very handy open source utility. It interrogates the kernel to obtain the memory information, outputting the information in a clean and uncluttered way.

The chart below uses ps_mem to compare the memory usage of various graphical podcast players. I’ve excluded console based podcast players such as castero for obvious reasons.


As you can see, Poddr has a fairly hefty memory footprint. Not surprising because software written in JavaScript using the Electron framework often guzzle RAM. Bear in mind some of the applications are not dedicated podcast players.
