Tiny desktop app that creates timelapse videos using your built in desktop/laptop camera.

app screenshot

Timelapse is built on top of Electron https://github.com/electron/electron to make use of the desktop environment.


Running the app locally

This app requires Node https://nodejs.org. Download the latest version before getting started.

This should install everything you need (including a local version of Electron) to get started with the project. Note that it's only been tested on OSX High Sierra 10.13.6.

$ npm install
$ npm start

Building for OSX

$ npm run build compress folder and place inside /updater/releases/


Good things to know

The app creates an application folder located at (/Users/{your username}/Library/Application Support/Timelapse) to store all your user settings and such.

Photos and timelapse videos are stored in your local ~/Pictures directory inside a /Timelapse folder that's created when you launch the app.
