A complete tool for building modern Electron applications.
Electron Forge unifies the existing (and well maintained) build tools for Electron development into a simple, easy to use package so that anyone can jump right in to Electron development.

master branch is a rewrite of Electron Forge that will eventually be the 6.x series. If you
are looking for the 5.x series (the version currently published to NPM under
electron-forge), please view the 5.x branch.
Note: Electron Forge requires Node 8 or above, plus git installed.
npx create-electron-app my-new-app # or yarn create electron-app my-new-app # then cd my-new-app npm start
Alternatively (less recommended):
npm install -g @electron-forge/cli electron-forge init my-new-app cd my-new-app npm start
- Starting with Electron should be as simple as a single command.
- Developers shouldn't have to worry about setting up build tooling, native module rebuilding, etc. Everything should "just work" for them out of the box.
- Everything from creating the project to packaging the project for release should be handled by one core dependency in a standard way while still offering users maximum choice and freedom.
With these goals in mind, under the hood this project uses, among others:
electron-rebuild: Automatically recompiles native Node.js modules against the correct Electron version.
- Electron Packager: Customizes and bundles your Electron app to get it ready for distribution.
