A complete tool for creating, publishing, and installing modern Electron applications
A complete tool for building modern Electron applications.
Electron Forge unifies the existing (and well maintained) build tools for Electron development into a simple, easy to use package so that anyone can jump right in to Electron development.
masterbranch is a rewrite of Electron Forge that will eventually be the 6.x series. If you are looking for the 5.x series (the version currently published to NPM under
electron-forge), please view the 5.x branch.
Note: Electron Forge requires Node 10 or above, plus git installed.
If you have a more recent version of
yarn, you can use
npx create-electron-app my-new-app # or yarn create electron-app my-new-app
cd my-new-app npm start
Alternatively (less recommended):
npm install -g @electron-forge/cli electron-forge init my-new-app cd my-new-app npm start
With these goals in mind, under the hood this project uses, among others:
electron-rebuild: Automatically recompiles native Node.js modules against the correct Electron version.
