Nativefier vs pygame: What are the differences?

Developers describe Nativefier as "Wrap any web page natively without even thinking, across Windows, OSX and Linux". Nativefier is a command line tool that allows you to easily create a desktop application for any web site with succinct and minimal configuration. Apps are wrapped by Electron in an OS executable (.app, .exe, etc.) for use on Windows, OSX and Linux. On the other hand, pygame is detailed as "Open Source python programming language library for making multimedia applications". It is a cross-platform set of Python modules designed for writing video games. It includes computer graphics and sound libraries designed to be used with the Python programming language.

Nativefier can be classified as a tool in the "Cross-Platform Desktop Development" category, while pygame is grouped under "Game Development".
