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


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, and some of the most used plugins like vue-router, vuex, and 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. Certain dependencies and scripts use ES6 specific features so the use of node@^6.5.0 or higher is recommended.

# 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
npm install
npm run dev
Wanting to use Vue 1?

Just point to the 1.0 branch. Please note that electron-vue has officially deprecated vue@^1 and documentation reflects those changes. Use the legacy documentation if you are using Vue 1.

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