How to deploy an Electron app as a executable or installable in Windows?


#1

I want to generate an unique .exe file to execute the app or an .msi to install the application. Any tips?


#2

I haven’t tried it myself, but it seems the answer is here


#3

Check out: https://github.com/szwacz/electron-boilerplate. It contains a few gulp tasks for generating an installer for Windows. Per the README, you’ll need to install a third party installer tool before you’ll be able to generate the installer package.

I found a npm module electron-packager is easy to use. I know this is not good becoz I didn’t know what real happened, but it can get me go and run very quickly and after I found it’s working well I can explore deeper in future.
