    • If you are running Windows, install VC++ Build Tools Technical Preview using the Default Install option; Install Python 2.7 and add it to your %PATH%; Run npm config set msvs_version 2015 --global
  2. Fork this repository to your own GitHub account and then clone it to your local device
  3. Install the dependencies: npm install
  4. Build the code and watch for changes: npm run dev
  5. In another terminal tab/window/pane, run the app: npm run app

To make sure that your code works in the finished application, you can generate the binaries like this:

npm run dist

After that, you'll see the binary in the ./dist folder!

node-pty issues

If after building during development you get an alert dialog related to node-pty issues, make sure its build process is working correctly by running npm rebuild manually inside the app directory.

If you're on macOS, this typically is related to Xcode issues (like not having agreed to the Terms of Service by running sudo xcodebuild after a fresh Xcode installation).
