Wire Desktop

Cross platform desktop app, wrapping the wire-webapp. Based on Electron.



git clone https://github.com/wireapp/wire-desktop.git
cd wire-desktop
npm install


npm start


npm test

Enable Support for Google Contacts (optional)

If you wish to import Google Contacts to Wire, you will need to generate Google OAuth 2.0 credentials for an "other" type app (See here for more details). Once you have generated your credentials, store the "Client ID" and "Client secret" in the environment as GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID and GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET, respectively.


# Build for macOS
npm run build:macos

# Build for Windows
npm run build:win

# Build for Linux
npm run build:linux

Other Linux targets or architectures

If you would like to build for another Linux target or architecture, run the following command:

grunt --arch=<arch> --target=<target> linux-other

Replace <arch> and <target> with your desired architecture (e.g. "ia32") and target (e.g. "rpm"). Have a look at the documentation for electron-builder for the available options. Note that we cannot offer support for uncommon architectures or targets.
