"Introducing Electron" (The editor)

In this repository, you will find each step and code example from the guide "Introducing Electron". It includes both the "Hello World" exercise (a simple code editor) as well as example implementations for each feature discussed in the "Working with Electron" section.


At the end of this exercise (and at the current state of the master branch), you can start the editor running npm start.

Code examples

All of these examples build on top of the master branch to illustrate the usage of a pattern discussed in the book.
