Working with jitsi-meet-electron-utils

jitsi-meet-electron-utils is a helper package which implements many features such as remote control and the always-on-top window. If new features are to be added / tested, running with a local version of these utils is very handy, here is how to do that.

By default the jitsi-meet-electron-utils is build from its git repository sources. The default dependency path in package.json is:

"jitsi-meet-electron-utils": "jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron-utils"

To work with local copy you must change the path to:

"jitsi-meet-electron-utils": "file:///Users/name/jitsi-meet-electron-utils-copy",

To build the project you must force it to take the sources as npm update will not do it.

npm install jitsi-meet-electron-utils --force

NOTE: Also check the jitsi-meet-electron-utils README to see how to configure your environment.
