Just npm install like you would do with any regular module.

There are no precompiled binaries yet, so you need to have node-gyp installed on your system.
You might run into the error below when trying to install this module:
Error: spawn C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools\MSBuild\15.0\Bin\MSBuild.exe ENOENT
To fix this, make sure to install the latest version of node-gyp globally:
$ npm install -g node-gyp
If you want to use body tracking, you will need to have a couple of dll files in the root of your application. Otherwise, you'll run into errors like the one below:
Cannot locate onnxruntime.dll
The install script of this module tries copy these files automatically. You should have the following files in your application root after running npm install:
If you can't find these files, copy them from inside node_modules/kinect-azure to your project root.
There are nodejs and electron examples in the examples/ folder of this repo. To run them, execute npm install and npm start:
$ cd examples/electron $ npm install $ npm start
