Clone and run for a quick way to see an Electron in action.

This is a minimal Electron application based on the Quick Start Guide within the Electron documentation.

A basic Electron application needs just these files:

  • index.html - A web page to render.
  • main.js - Starts the app and creates a browser window to render HTML.
  • package.json - Points to the app's main file and lists its details and dependencies.

You can learn more about each of these components within the Quick Start Guide.
