  • Change to the folder ./, run npm install to install dependented libraries
  • Run npm run dev to start the development server
  • Then run npm run start to start the app for developing or debuging

Build and package

  • It is recommended to use electron-builder for packaging
  • Go to the ./ folder
  • Run npm run build
  • Run npm run make, if everything goes well, the packaged files will be in the ./dist folder.
  • This command may take several minutes to finish when you run it the first time, as it needs time to download dependent files. You can download the dependencies manually here, or Taobao mirror, then save the files to ~/.electron . You can check the Electron Docs for more infomation.
