The all-in-one solution for building React Native applications.
You can get started right away on your React Native project by installing Deco and creating a new project — it's fast and there's no manual setup needed. File scaffolding handles your boilerplate. Ready-made components drop right into your code. Properties are graphically editable through the property inspector. It's an entirely new way to write, tweak, and re-use code.

Setup for Development
It is recommended that you use node v5.x and npm 3.x for best results. This project also requires the Ruby 'Bundler' gem.
Installing these on your Mac is easy with Homebrew
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Now that Homebrew is installed you can run these commands:
brew install node brew install ruby gem install bundler
Linux is not supported at this time.

Clone and Install Dependencies
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:decosoftware/deco-ide $ cd ./deco-ide/web $ npm install $ bundle install $ cd ../desktop $ npm install $ npm run copy-libs $ cd ../shared $ npm install $ cd ../desktop/libs/Scripts/sync-service $ npm install
Deco core is split into three sub-projects...
- A webpack bundle that assumes it's been loaded by Electron's BrowserWindow.
- A webpack bundle that runs in Electron's NodeJS environment and controls the desktop APIs.
- Shared constants for communicating over our IPC (inter-process communication) abstraction layer.
$ cd ./deco-ide $ ./run-dev.js
Occasionally it is helpful to stop and restart the
desktop gulp task without stopping the
web gulp task. To do this you can run the following commands...
$ cd ./web $ npm run watch
This command will:
- Watch the
./web/srcdirectory and re-build on any changes to the code
- Serve the build on localhost:8080
# Open a new terminal window $ cd ./desktop $ npm run start
This command will:
./desktop/srcand place the result into
- Launch a local Electron binary and load in the bundle from
Testing a Production Build
$ cd ./desktop $ npm run pack
The resulting .pkg file will be output to
This build is for local testing only. When you install, the system will generate a warning about this being from an unapproved developer — this is because the package is not signed when building locally.
