The Electron framework lets you write cross-platform desktop applications using JavaScript, HTML and CSS. It is based on Node.js and Chromium and is used by the Visual Studio Code and many other apps.

Follow @electronjs on Twitter for important announcements.

This project adheres to the Contributor Covenant code of conduct. By participating, you are expected to uphold this code. Please report unacceptable behavior to [email protected].


To install prebuilt Electron binaries, use npm. The preferred method is to install Electron as a development dependency in your app:

npm install electron --save-dev

For more installation options and troubleshooting tips, see installation. For info on how to manage Electron versions in your apps, see Electron versioning.

Platform support

Each Electron release provides binaries for macOS, Windows, and Linux.

  • macOS (Catalina and up): Electron provides 64-bit Intel and ARM binaries for macOS. Apple Silicon support was added in Electron 11.
  • Windows (Windows 10 and up): Electron provides ia32 (x86), x64 (amd64), and arm64 binaries for Windows. Windows on ARM support was added in Electron 5.0.8. Support for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 was removed in Electron 23, in line with Chromium's Windows deprecation policy.
  • Linux: The prebuilt binaries of Electron are built on Ubuntu 20.04. They have also been verified to work on:
    • Ubuntu 18.04 and newer
    • Fedora 32 and newer
    • Debian 10 and newer

Quick start & Electron Fiddle

Use Electron Fiddle to build, run, and package small Electron experiments, to see code examples for all of Electron's APIs, and to try out different versions of Electron. It's designed to make the start of your journey with Electron easier.

Alternatively, clone and run the electron/electron-quick-start repository to see a minimal Electron app in action:

git clone https://github.com/electron/electron-quick-start
cd electron-quick-start
npm install
npm start

Resources for learning Electron

Programmatic usage

Most people use Electron from the command line, but if you require electron inside your Node app (not your Electron app) it will return the file path to the binary. Use this to spawn Electron from Node scripts:

const electron = require('electron')
const proc = require('node:child_process')

// will print something similar to /Users/maf/.../Electron

// spawn Electron
const child = proc.spawn(electron)


See the Advanced Installation Instructions to learn how to use a custom mirror.

Documentation translations

We crowdsource translations for our documentation via Crowdin. We currently accept translations for Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.


If you are interested in reporting/fixing issues and contributing directly to the code base, please see CONTRIBUTING.md for more information on what we're looking for and how to get started.


Info on reporting bugs, getting help, finding third-party tools and sample apps, and more can be found on the Community page.
