The boilerplate for making electron applications built with vue (pretty much what it sounds like).

Overview

The aim of this project is to remove the need of manually setting up electron apps using vue. electron-vue takes advantage of vue-cli for scaffolding, webpack with vue-loader, electron-packager or electron-builder, some of the most used plugins like vue-router, vuex, and so much more.

Check out the documentation here.

Things you'll find in this boilerplate...

*Customizable during vue-cli scaffolding

Getting Started

This boilerplate was built as a template for vue-cli and includes options to customize your final scaffolded app. The use of node@^7 or higher is required. electron-vue also officially recommends the yarn package manager as it handles dependencies much better and can help reduce final build size with yarn clean.

# Install vue-cli and scaffold boilerplate
npm install -g vue-cli
vue init simulatedgreg/electron-vue my-project

# Install dependencies and run your app
cd my-project
yarn # or npm install
yarn run dev # or npm run dev
Are you a Windows User?

Make sure to check out A Note for Windows Users to make sure you have all the necessary build tools needed for electron and other dependencies.

Wanting to use Vue 1?

Just point to the 1.0 branch. Please note that electron-vue has officially deprecated the usage of vue@^1, so project structure, features, and documentation will reflect those changes (legacy documentation).

vue init simulatedgreg/electron-vue#1.0 my-project
