Does Electron try to auto-update itself?


#1

I develop a lot of kiosk applications and digital signage. I’ve typically just been launching these in Chrome with kiosk mode, but I’ve been running into issues when Chrome auto-updates itself.

Electron seems like a really great alternative. My question is, once you package your app, is that it? Is it locked down? It’s not going to call home and try to update its Chromium?

The auto-updating is totally optional. If you don’t set it up Electron should not make any attempts to update any of your applications components.
