Build Status XO code style

This package lets you use Next.js for building the renderer of your Electron apps!

  • In production, it ensures that the
    protocol (which Electron uses to load your static assets in the renderer process) works properly with your Next.js bundle (generated by
    next export
  • While developing, it takes care of the whole flow required for building the renderer code


Firstly, install the package using any node package manager:

yarn add electron-next

Then load it:

const prepareRenderer = require('electron-next')

As the final step, call the package:

  • : The path to the directory containing the renderer (relative to the app's root directory). If the paths for development and production aren't the same, this can be an object holding a 
    and a
    key with their respective paths (string|object).
  • : Used for running Next.js in development (number, optional, defaults to 
await prepareRenderer(, )

Caught a Bug?

  1. Fork this repository to your own GitHub account and then clone it to your local device
  2. Link the package to the global package directory:
    npm link
  3. Within the electron app of your choice, link it to the dependencies:
    npm link electron-next
    . Instead of the default one from npm, it will now use your local clone of the package!
