Svelte Electron

If you are looking for a powerful desktop application development tool, Svelte Electron is definitely worth your attention. Svelte is a JavaScript framework that allows you to build web applications with ease, while Electron is a popular framework that enables you to create desktop applications using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Svelte Electron combines these two frameworks to provide a powerful platform for developing desktop applications.

How to Use Svelte Electron?

To use Svelte Electron, you need to have a basic understanding of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. The first step is to install the required software on your computer. You can do this by following the instructions on the official Svelte and Electron websites.

Once the software is installed, you can create a new Svelte Electron project by running the following commands:

npx degit sveltejs/template my-svelte-electron-app
cd my-svelte-electron-app
npm install

This will create a new project in the "my-svelte-electron-app" directory and install all the required dependencies.

Building a Desktop Application with Svelte Electron

Now that you have created a new project, you can start building your desktop application using Svelte and Electron. Here are the steps:

  1. Create a new Svelte component in the "src" directory. For example, you can create a new file named "App.svelte".
  2. Write your UI code in the Svelte component using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  3. Create an Electron main file in the "public" directory. For example, you can create a new file named "main.js".
  4. Write your Electron code in the main file to create a new Electron window and load your Svelte component.
  5. Use the "electron-builder" package to build your desktop application for different platforms such as Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Here is an example code snippet that shows how to create a new Electron window and load a Svelte component:

const { app, BrowserWindow } = require('electron')

function createWindow () {
  const win = new BrowserWindow({
    width: 800,
    height: 600,
    webPreferences: {
      nodeIntegration: true


app.whenReady().then(() => {

  app.on('activate', () => {
    if (BrowserWindow.getAllWindows().length === 0) {

app.on('window-all-closed', () => {
  if (process.platform !== 'darwin') {

As you can see, Svelte Electron provides a simple and efficient way to build powerful desktop applications. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced developer, Svelte Electron is definitely worth your time and effort.
