Scaffold, Run, Test and Package Electron application with ease
Bozon is a single tool for handling different tasks being performed by multiple packages, which is used for building desktop applications with Electron. Simplify building, compiling, running, testing, and packaging your application.
npm install -g bozon
Bozon tool should be installed globally in order to be used for all your electron apps.
Then generate your new project:
bozon new [name]
This will create a new directory
[name] produce the following file structure:
--skip-installoption if you want to skip running
|--config/ |--resources/ |--src/ | |--main/ | | |--index.js | |--renderer/ | | |--images/ | | |--stylesheets/ | | |--index.js | | |--index.html |--test/ |--package.json
This will compile Application source code to
./builds/development directory and run your application from it.
Bozon provides a way to define environment specific and platform specific configuration options. These multiple config files are being merged into one single
config object during build. This
config object is accessible via
CONFIG variable in
main process files of your application, so that you can use it in your code.
|--config/ | |--settings.json | |--environments/ | | |--development.json | | |--production.json | | |--test.json | |--platforms/ | | |--mac.json | | |--linux.json | | |--windows.json
Packaging Electron application is done by electron-builder using settings in defined in
Application source code is being compiled to
./builds/production/ directory, and packaged versions for different platforms go to
bozon package [mac|windows|linux]
