Getting Started

  1. Install electron-toolkit inside your Electron app directory
npm install electron-toolkit --save-dev
  1. Add the electron-toolkit script to your package.json file
  "scripts": {
    "electron-toolkit": "electron ./node_modules/electron-toolkit"
  1. Make sure Electron and Electron Builder are installed.
npm install electron --save-dev
npm install electron-builder --save-dev
  1. Now you can run electron-toolkit directly from your project directory
npm run electron-toolkit

Security Checklist

  • Only display secure (https) content:

<webview :src="'https://' + url" :preload="preloadScript" ></webview>

  • Disable the Node integration in all renderers that display remote content (setting nodeIntegration to false in webPreferences)
  • Enable context isolation in all renderers that display remote content (setting contextIsolation to true in webPreferences)
  • Use ses.setPermissionRequestHandler() in all sessions that load remote content
  • Do not disable webSecurity. Disabling it will disable the same-origin policy.
  • Define a Content-Security-Policy , and use restrictive rules (i.e. script-src 'self')
  • Override and disable eval , which allows strings to be executed as code.
  • Do not set allowRunningInsecureContent to true.
  • Do not enable experimentalFeatures or experimentalCanvasFeatures unless you know what you're doing.
  • Do not use blinkFeatures unless you know what you're doing.
  • WebViews: Do not add the nodeintegration attribute.
  • WebViews: Do not use disablewebsecurity
  • WebViews: Do not use allowpopups
  • WebViews: Do not use insertCSS or executeJavaScript with remote CSS/JS.
  • WebViews: Verify the options and params of all <webview> tags before they get attached using the will-attach-webview event
app.on('web-contents-created', (event, contents) => {
  contents.on('will-attach-webview', (event, webPreferences, params) => {
    // Strip away preload scripts if unused or verify their location is legitimate
    delete webPreferences.preload
    delete webPreferences.preloadURL

    // Disable node integration
    webPreferences.nodeIntegration = false

    // Verify URL being loaded
    if (!params.src.startsWith('')) {
