  • Electron 1.7.x - Node.js v7.9.0.
  • Electron 1.8.x - Node.js v8.2.1.

Usage is the same as edge or edge-js, replace require('edge') or require('edge-js') with require('electron-edge-js'):

npm install electron-edge-js
-var edge = require('edge-js');
+var edge = require('electron-edge-js');
var helloWorld = edge.func(function () {/*
    async (input) => {
        return ".NET Welcomes " + input.ToString();

Requirements (Windows)

You must install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (x86)

Why use electron-edge-js?

Electron is built using specific version of Node.js. In order to use edge in Electron project you would need to recompile it using the same Node.js version and Electron headers.

electron-edge-js comes precompiled with correct Node.js versions and headers.

Differences from electron-edge

  • Supports majority of Electron versions.
