Distribution Overview

Once your app is ready for production, there are a couple steps you need to take before you can deliver it to your users.


To distribute your app with Electron, you need to package all your resources and assets into an executable and rebrand it. To do this, you can either use specialized tooling like Electron Forge or do it manually. See the Application Packaging tutorial for more information.

Firma de código

La firma de código es una tecnología de seguridad que utiliza para certificar que una aplicación fue creada por usted. You should sign your application so it does not trigger the security checks of your user's operating system.

To get started with each operating system's code signing process, please read the Code Signing docs.


Once your app is packaged and signed, you can freely distribute your app directly to users by uploading your installers online.

To reach more users, you can also choose to upload your app to each operating system's digital distribution platform (i.e. app store). These require another build step aside from your direct download app. For more information, check out each individual app store guide:


Electron's auto-updater allows you to deliver application updates to users without forcing them to manually download new versions of your application. Check out the Updating Applications guide for details on implementing automatic updates with Electron.
