The boilerplate for making electron apps built with vue (pretty much what it sounds like).

Build Status


forthebadge forthebadge forthebadge


The aim of this project is to remove the need of manually setting up electron apps using vue. electron-vue takes advantage of vue-cli for scaffolding, webpack and vue-loader, and some of the most used plugins like vue-router, vuex, and more.

Check out the documentation here.

Things you'll find in this boilerplate...

*Customizable during vue-cli scaffolding

Getting Started

This boilerplate was built as a template for vue-cli and includes options to customize your final scaffolded app. The use of node v5.10.0 or higher is required as certain ES6 are used in dependencies and scripts. But the use of 6.x is recommended for its extra performance benefits.

# Install vue-cli and scaffold boilerplate
npm install -g vue-cli
vue init simulatedgreg/electron-vue my-project

# Install dependencies and run your app
cd my-project
npm install
npm run dev
Are you a Windows User?
