[ Electron for MAS (Mac app store) ]
After doing a lot of research I've found that in order to build an electron app for the Mac App Store, it requires a special build of Electron. Previously though I've only used electron-prebuilt installed via npm.
Is there a way to install the mac app store version via npm or is there a pre-built version? I can't seem to find any such packages. I do notice the full code is here https://github.com/atom/electron/releases but, it would be nicer to have the dependencies remain in my package.json if possible. Is there a recommended way to set this up?
First, you need to install electron-packager to package the app:
npm install -g electron-packager
electron-packager <sourcedir> <appname> --platform=darwin --arch=x64 --version=<Electron version> [optional flags...]
to package the app.
Note: replace arch with
ia32 if you're packaging for 32-bit, or
all to package for both.
