Getting started

You can download the latest pre-packaged version here or choose a version from the releases page.

To run it locally, you must first clone this repository and run the following commands:

yarn install
yarn dev

Afterwards, to build the application for the current platform, run the following:

yarn build

Alternative, you can build the application in development mode to include the Development menu and Chrome's dev tools, which makes it a bit slower:

yarn build:dev

For other building options, refer to the package.json scripts.
