Quickstart for debugging an Electron + Lambda app using Rookout

A sample application for debugging an Electron app using Rookout

Before following this guide we recommend reading the basic Node + Rookout guide

Rookout Integration Explained

There are 4 simple steps to integrate Rookout into your existing Node-Electron application:

  1. Adding the Rookout SDK to package.json available on npm:

    $ npm install --save rookout --runtime=electron --target=4.0.1

    IMPORTANT:: replace ELECTRON_VERSION_HERE with your electron version

  2. Export Organization Token:

    $ export ROOKOUT_TOKEN=<Your-Token>
  3. Adding a require statement to the project entry file:

    const rook = require("rookout/auto_start");
  4. Update the command line for electron to contain --inspect, In the package.json:

    "scripts": {
    "start": "electron . --inspect" 
  5. Build your electron application


In case of an error like this:

Error: Failed to load gRPC binary module because it was not installed for the current system
Expected directory: electron-v1.8-win32-x64-unknown
Found: [node-v59-win32-x64-unknown]

simply delete grpc folder inside the node_modules, and run:

$ npm install --save rookout --runtime=electron --target=4.0.1
You can’t perform that action at this time.
