simple storage managing module for electron
Electron saves data in app.getPath("userData") folder, which is different in every os.
electron-storage gives simple methods to get and set json files to this directory.
- Creates subdirectories if needed - that means you can write
movies/StarWars.jsonas path, a movies folder will be created and a StarWars.json file inside.
- Supports callbacks and promises.
- You don't have to write
.jsonin the end of a file path, it will add it for you.
$ npm install --save electron-storage
const storage = ;
get a json file from storage.
set a json file to storage.
storage.set(filePath, data, cb)
check if a file or directory exists.
// you have to write .json suffix for json files.// this method works on directories as well, if you don't write `.json` suffix it checks for a directory.
remove a file or a directory from storage
npm run build
for creating es5 files in dist folder
