Jitsi-meet-desktop [electron]: join conference and share a window unattended (autostart)

hello!

wondering if there are command line options or some other mechanism to have the jitsi-meet-desktop app auto-join a conference, and auto-share a (named?) window.

maybe it’s more of an electron question and the GUI can be somehow scripted/automated?

the app being open source making our custom version is a possibility (in our use case URL and window name can be hard-coded so i assume it could be an easy hack) but we’d gladly use some directions as to were we should hook into (never worked with electron; we’re C++/python oriented).

currently running the client on Arch linux – could be other OS. using our own videobridge.

thanks,
alex.
