Electron WebView

Build Status npm version npm license status

A simple wrapper of the Electron WebView element to allow it's magical props in React

Installation

The easiest way to use react-electron-web-view is to install it from NPM and require or import it in your Electron application.

You can also use the standalone build by including dist/react-electron-web-view.js in your page. If you use this, make sure you have already included React, and it is available as a global variable.

npm install react-electron-web-view --save

Or for the hipsters out there

yarn add react-electron-web-view

Usage

All events and methods on the WebView element are proxied through react. You find the documentation on these events and methods here

const WebView = require('react-electron-web-view');

<WebView src="https://www.google.com" />

Properties

In addition to the documented Electron WebView properties we have a few extra ones

  • className String - Sets the className of the WebView element
  • style Object - Sets the style of the wrapping div element.
  • muted Boolean - Sets the muted state of the webContents
  • devtools Boolean - true if the devtools should be open, false otherwise

Notes

Behind the scenes this renders a div and the unsafely sets the innerHTML of that div to be a webview element. This hasn't been completely tested so make sure it works for you.

Development (src, lib and the build process)

NOTE: The source code for the component is in src. A transpiled CommonJS version (generated with Babel) is available in lib for use with node.js, browserify and webpack.
