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.
Note: The major version bump between v5.0.0 and v6.0.0 contains major breaking API changes and improvements. If you are new to Forge, we highly recommend using the latest version. If using an older version of Forge, we recommend upgrading to v6.0.0 or later.
npx create-electron-app my-new-app
yarn create electron-app my-new-app
Alternatively (less recommended):
npm install -g @electron-forge/cli
electron-forge init my-new-app
For more information on creating a new project from a template, see our CLI documentation.

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.
