A Simplenote React client packaged in Electron. Learn more about Simplenote at Simplenote.com.

Running

  1. Clone the repo: git clone https://github.com/Automattic/simplenote-electron.git
  2. cd simplenote-electron
  3. npm install
  4. npm run dev
  5. The dev server will start on http://localhost:4000, and the Electron app will launch automatically.
  6. Sign up for a new account within the app. Use the account for testing purposes only as all note data will be periodically cleared out on the server.

Note: Simplenote API features such as sharing and publishing will not work with development builds. Due to a limitation of make installation paths used for build cannot have spaces.

Building

  • make package-osx
  • make package-win32
  • make package-linux

Testing

Unit tests are run with npm test.

End-to-end tests are run with npm run test-e2e. Note that the Spectron version corresponds with the version of Electron we are using and so at the time of writing this is pinned at version 6. Use the corresponding API docs for webdriver-io which correspond to the Specron version. At the time of writing you will want to refer to the webdriver-io v4.13 API docs.
