FAQ

How can I speed up downloading Electron?

If you’re not in Europe or the US, you might want to use a different mirror for electron. You can set the ELECTRON_MIRROR variable to point to a different provider:

# Europe / US
$ npm install

# Asia / Oceania
$ ELECTRON_MIRROR="https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/electron/" npm install
