Angular Electron Seed

This seed combines the technologies of Angular (4+) with Electron to create a robust development stack for creating Desktop applications. Leveraging the stock AngularCLI build process, we are able to maintain webpack and stock tooling with minimal tweaking.


Getting Started

Command Description
npm i Install the required dependencies
npm run start Builds the project and opens your app in Electron
npm run Builds the project and watches for file changes with Angular CLI
npm run watch Runs the custom tooling and syncs the live-sync with the AngularCLI watch task
npm run bundle.mac Bundles your MacOS app into the bundles directory
npm run Bundles your Windows app into the bundles directory
