Electron Installer: Snap

Build Status Code Coverage

Builds Snap files for Electron applications that have already been bundled and customized.

Requirements

Requires Node 10 or greater, and snapcraft.

Quick Start

The easiest way is to use Electron Forge and enable the snap maker.

To use this as a standalone CLI, install electron-installer-snap to your project:

npm install --save-dev electron-installer-snap
# or
yarn add --dev electron-installer-snap

Then add to your package.json:

{
  // ...
  "scripts": {
    "build:package": "electron-packager . --out=out"
    "build:snap": "electron-installer-snap --src=out/myappname-linux-x64"
  },
  // ...
}

Then you can run npm run build:package && npm run build:snap, which will prepare the Electron app for bundling and generate a .snap file in your current directory. It is recommended to ignore the generated snap directory in your version control.

Options

Available command-line options are displayed when you run electron-installer-snap --help.

For the JavaScript API, please see the API docs.

Thanks

Thank you to Canonical for the support in getting this module created, during the September 2017 Ubuntu Rally and the January 2018 Snapcraft Summit.
