Electron Package Plugin

A Webpack plugin to generate the Electron package.json with the values in the project package.json

Installation

npm install --save electron-package-plugin

Usage

Giving the package.json in your project, ex:

{
  "name": "example-package",
  "version": "0.0.0-example",
  "description": "This is an example package"
}

You can just set the plugin in the Electron main webpack.config.js

// webpack.config.js
const ElectronPackagePlugin = require('electron-package-plugin');
 
module.exports = {
  // ...
  plugins: [
    // ...
    new ElectronPackagePlugin(),
  ]
  // ...
};

This will generate a package.json file in the target folder as the follow:

{
  "name": "example-package",
  "version": "0.0.0-example",
  "description": "This is an example package",
  "main": "main.js"
}
