A commonplace book system for Kindle highlights. Also, a sandbox to experiment with React and Electron.
This project uses the electron-react-boilerplate.
- Note: requires a node version >= 6 and an npm version >= 3.
- If you have installation or compilation issues with this project, please see our debugging guide
First, clone the repo via git:
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/chentsulin/electron-react-boilerplate.git your-project-name
And then install dependencies. ProTip: Install with yarn for faster and safer installation
$ cd your-project-name && npm install
npm run cleanup. After this is run, the initial sample boilerplate code will be removed in order for a clean project for starting custom dev
Run these two commands simultaneously in different console tabs.

or run two servers with one command
$ npm run dev

To package apps for the local platform:
$ npm run package
To package apps for all platforms:
First, refer to Multi Platform Build for dependencies.
$ npm run package-all
To package apps with options:
$ npm run package -- --[option]
To run the application without packaging run
$ npm run build $ npm start
To run End-to-End Test
$ npm run build $ npm run test-e2e
This boilerplate uses a two package.json structure.
- If the module is native to a platform or otherwise should be included with the published package (i.e. bcrypt, openbci), it should be listed under
- If a module is
imported by another module, include it in
./package.json. See this ESLint rule.
- Otherwise, modules used for building, testing and debugging should be included in
Static Type Checking
This project comes with Flow support out of the box! You can annotate your code with types, get Flow errors as ESLint errors, and get type errors during runtime during development. Types are completely optional.
If you want to have native-like User Interface (OS X El Capitan and Windows 10), react-desktop may perfect suit for you.
