Electron is an npm module that contains pre-compiled versions of Electron.

If you’ve installed it globally with npm, then you will only need to run the following in your app’s source directory:

	electron .

If you’ve installed it locally, then run:


	./node_modules/.bin/electron .
	./ your-app/


	./node_modules/.bin/electron .
	./electron/electron your-app/


	.\node_modules\.bin\electron .
	.\electron\electron.exe your-app\

Try this Sample

	# Clone the repository
	git clone [email protected]:linkRachit/Electron-sample-app.git

	# Go into the repository
	cd Electron-sample-app

	# Install dependencies
	npm install
	# Run the app
	npm start

Now you are able to see GUI of app, app icon in tray, and app service in platform services and every time system restart, app will be launch automatically.
