Build instructions

Due to the native dependency better-sqlite3, this project cannot be built for all platforms on GNU/Linux. The GNU/Linux packages must be built on GNU/Linux, the Windows package must be built on Windows and the MacOS package must be built on MacOS.

$ git clone https://github.com/digimezzo/dopamine.git
$ cd dopamine
$ npm install                # Install dependencies
$ npm start                  # Start Dopamine
$ npm run electron:windows   # Build for Windows
$ npm run electron:linux     # Build for Linux
$ npm run electron:mac       # Build for Mac

Pacman installation notes

The pacman package contains a dependency to package libappindicator-sharp, which is no longer distributed with Arch Linux. I cannot remove this dependency for now, because it is an issue in electron-builder (the packaging tool which is used in this project). It is, however, possible to install Dopamine on Arch Linux or Manjaro using this command:

$ sudo pacman -U Dopamine-3.0.0-preview.3.pacman --assume-installed libappindicator-sharp
