    ngx-electron is a small Module for Angular which makes calling Electron APIs from the Renderer Process easier. By adding it to your Angular project, you'll get IntelliSense and a simple Angular service which acts as facade for Electron APIs.

    ngx-electron is licensed under MIT.

    ngx-electron can be installed easily using either yarn or npm commands in the scope of an angular project.

    yarn add ngx-electron --save
    # or 
    npm install ngx-electron --save

    The NgxElectronModule needs to be import in your root Angular module (eg AppModule).

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    import { NgxElectronModule } from 'ngx-electron';
        declarations: [],
        imports: [
        bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    export class AppModule {

    Once the module has been imported, you can easily use dependency injection to get an instance of ElectronService.

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { ElectronService } from 'ngx-electron';
      selector: 'my-app',
      templateUrl: 'app.html'
    export class AppComponent {
        constructor(private _electronService: ElectronService) { }
        public playPingPong() {
            if(this._electronService.isElectronApp) {
                let pong: string = this._electronService.ipcRenderer.sendSync('ping');


    The ElectronService is exposing all API's accessible from within Electron's renderer process. If your app is not running inside electron, all getters will return NULL instead.
