Create extensible electron applications through a plugin architecture that uses NPM (or similar registry) or GitHub as repository for the extensions.


add it to your electron project using npm install electron-plugin --save or yarn add electron-plugin


require electron-plugin exports a function that requires a javascript object and an electron window, as seen on the next example:

const pluginManager = require(`electron-plugin`)
let config = { 
        installPath: `${__dirname}/test_folder`,
        plugins : {
            "electron-plugin-example": "0.0.2"
    extensionPoint = {
        app: 'anything you want to use as exstention point'

pluginManager.load(config, extensionPoint)
