Read-Eval-Print-Loop (REPL) is a simple, interactive computer programming environment that takes single user inputs (i.e. single expressions), evaluates them, and returns the result to the user.
Electron exposes the Node.js
--interactive CLI flag. Assuming you have
electron installed as a local project
dependency, you should be able to access the REPL with the following command:
electron --interactive is not available on Windows
(see electron/electron#5776 for more details).
You can use the DevTools Console tab to get a REPL for any renderer process. To learn more, read the Chrome documentation.
