Automatically Build and Publish Node and Electron Applications for Linux


Here’s a video of a talk I gave recently about automatically building and publishing Node.JS and Electron applications for Linux using Snapcraft.

Of particular interest to Electron developers is that electron-builder has first class support for snaps and publishing in the snap store gives feature parity with the built-in auto-update features available in Electron for Windows and macOS. Snaps of Electron applications published in the store will be discoverable via the Software store installed by default in all major Linux distributions.


If you have questions about snapping Electron applications we also have a Discourse instance for Snapcraft :slight_smile:
