Create an RPM package for RedHat-based Linux distributions for your Electron app, using Electron Forge.

The RPM target builds .rpm files, which is the standard package format for Red Hat-based Linux distributions such as Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).


You can only build the RPM target on Linux machines with the rpm or rpm-build packages installed.

On Fedora you can do something like this:

sudo dnf install rpm-build

While on Debian or Ubuntu you'll need to do this:

sudo apt-get install rpm


Configuration options are documented in MakerRpmConfig.

  name: '@electron-forge/maker-rpm',
  config: {
    options: {
      homepage: 'http://example.com'
