Alien::Electron - Download and install the electron GUI framework
This package will download a zip file containing github's Electron GUI framework and will then install it into its private distribution share directory.
The location of the binary is stored in the
$ perl -MAlien::Electron -E 'say $Alien::Electron::electron_binary' /usr/local/share/perl/5.18.2/auto/share/dist/Alien-Electron/electron
Note that you may want to use the Valence module instead of accessing the
electron binary directly.
On linux, the
X11 environment variable must be set otherwise the electron binary will silently fail to start. In the case of running inside a docker container, see the workaround in github issue #2.
Need to get windows support working.
