repos-using-electron Build Status

A collection of all public GitHub repositories that depend on electron or electron-prebuilt.

Uses the to find dependent repos, and the GitHub API to fetch latest package.json for each repo.


npm install repos-using-electron --save


When you require this module, you get an array of repository objects.

const repos = require('repos-using-electron')

To find a specific repo:

const hyperterm = repos.find(repo => repo.fullName === 'zeit/hyperterm')

Each repo has a pkg property that is a nice package. This gives you some convenience functions:

hyperterm.pkg.dependsOn('object-values') // true
hyperterm.pkg.devDependsOn('webpack') // true
hyperterm.pkg.somehowDependsOn('hoarders') // false

Find the top 30 repos that depend on electron-builder (repos are sorted by forksCount by default):

  .filter(repo => repo.pkg.somehowDependsOn('electron-builder'))
  .slice(0, 30)
  .map(repo => repo.fullName)

Open those top 30 repos in your browser:

const open = require('open')

  .filter(repo => repo.pkg.somehowDependsOn('electron-builder'))
  .slice(0, 30)
  .map(repo => open(repo.htmlUrl))


To hack on this thing you'll need a API key and a GitHub Personal Access Token with repo access. Put your keys in a .env file; they'll be loaded into the environment at runtime:

touch .env
echo LIBRARIES_IO_API_KEY=foo >> .env
echo GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN=bar >> .env

Then list the scripts you can run:

npm run


npm install
npm test
