Local Electron Plugin
Integrate a local build of Electron into your Forge app.
This plugin should only be used by people who are building Electron locally themselves. If you want to use a fork of Electron, check out the environment variables you can use to configure
This plugin allows you to both run and build your app using a local build of Electron. This can be incredibly useful if you want to test a feature or a bug fix in your app before making a PR up to the Electron repository.
yarn add --dev @electron-forge/plugin-local-electron
npm install --save-dev @electron-forge/plugin-local-electron
Once you have a working build of Electron, point the plugin's
electronPathconfig option to the folder containing the built Electron binary.
Please note that the plugin only accepts absolute paths. You should use Node's
path.resolve()to make things deterministic.
