Why use png-to-ico?

When I work on an electron project, it's always a nightmare to create ico for windows.
There're so many options out there like apps that make icon for you, photoshop plugin. But none of them satisfy me.
I want a JavaScript module that works like the .NET ico tool, which automatically generate different sizes for ico file.

Based on jimp: An image processing library written entirely in JavaScript for Node, with zero external or native dependencies.
In other words, png-to-ico is written purely in JavaScript, which is great for windows user.
