Examples overview

In this section, we have collected a set of guides for common features that you may want to implement in your Electron application. Each guide contains a practical example in a minimal, self-contained example app. The easiest way to run these examples is by downloading Electron Fiddle.

Once Fiddle is installed, you can press on the "Open in Fiddle" button that you will find below code samples like the following one:

const { app, BrowserWindow } = require('electron')const path = require('path')
function createWindow () {  const win = new BrowserWindow({    width: 800,    height: 600,    webPreferences: {      preload: path.join(__dirname, 'preload.js')    }  })
app.whenReady().then(() => {  createWindow()
  app.on('activate', () => {    if (BrowserWindow.getAllWindows().length === 0) {      createWindow()    }  })})
app.on('window-all-closed', () => {  if (process.platform !== 'darwin') {    app.quit()  }})
