Vue 3

How to create an Electron app with Vue and Electron Forge
Vue 3 can be added to Electron Forge's Vite template with a few setup steps.
The following guide has been tested with Vue 3 and Vite 4.

Setting up the app

Create an Electron app using Electron Forge's Vite template.
npm init electron-app@latest my-vue-app -- --template=vite

Adding dependencies

Add the vue npm package to your dependencies and the @vitejs/plugin-vue package to your devDependencies:
npm install vue
npm install --save-dev @vitejs/plugin-vue

Integrating Vue 3 code

You should now be able to start using Vue components in your Electron app. The following is a very minimal example of how to start to add Vue 3 code:
Replace the contents of src/index.html with a <div> element with the #app id attribute.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset="UTF-8" />
<title>Hello World!</title>
<div id="app"></div>
<script type="module" src="/src/renderer.js"></script>
Add the contents from the template back to src/App.vue.
<h1>💖 Hello World!</h1>
<p>Welcome to your Electron application.</p>
<script setup>
console.log('👋 This message is being logged by "App.vue", included via Vite');
Mount App.vue into the DOM with Vue's createApp API.
import { createApp } from 'vue';
import App from './App.vue';
Configure the Vue plugin for Vite.js.
import { defineConfig } from 'vite';
import vue from '@vitejs/plugin-vue';
export default defineConfig({
plugins: [vue()]
