Electron + Vue


  • Electron: 使用 JavaScript, HTML 和 CSS 等 Web 技术创建原生程序的框架
  • Vue.js: Web 前端用于构建用户界面的渐进式框架
  • Vuetify: Vue.js 的 Material Design 组件框架

看完以上介绍,也明白了本文要做的事:用 Vue.js 与 Vuetify 组件,基于 Electron 来创建原生桌面应用。


Visual Studio Code

建议使用的 VS Code 编辑代码,下载地址:


  • ESLint: 代码检查
  • Prettier - Code formatter: 代码格式化
  • Vetur: Vue 代码工具
  • Vue 2 Snippets: Vue 代码提示(可选)

查看 VS Code 版本:

$ code -v


Node.js 开发环境,下载地址:

建议选择 Latest LTS Version ,因为 Electron v9 仍旧使用的 Node.js v12 。

查看 Node, NPM 版本:

$ node -v

$ npm -v


Yarn 包管理工具,相比 NPM 而言: Fast, Reliable, Secure 。


全局安装 Yarn :

npm config set registry
npm install -g yarn

查看 Yarn 版本:

$ yarn -v


Vue CLI 是 Vue.js 开发的标准工具。


全局安装 Vue CLI :

yarn global add @vue/cli

查看 Vue CLI 版本:

$ vue -V
@vue/cli 4.4.6

创建 Vue.js 应用

vue create my-app


Vue CLI v4.4.6
? Please pick a preset: Manually select features
? Check the features needed for your project: Babel, TS, Router, Vuex, Linter
? Use class-style component syntax? Yes
? Use Babel alongside TypeScript (required for modern mode, auto-detected polyfills, transpiling JSX)? Yes
? Use history mode for router? (Requires proper server setup for index fallback in production) Yes
? Pick a linter / formatter config: Prettier
? Pick additional lint features: Lint on save
? Where do you prefer placing config for Babel, ESLint, etc.? In dedicated config files
? Save this as a preset for future projects? No
? Pick the package manager to use when installing dependencies: Yarn

~/.vuerc 会保存一些可复用的 preset :

$ cat ~/.vuerc
"useTaobaoRegistry": true,
"packageManager": "yarn"


cd my-app
yarn serve

浏览器打开 http://localhost:8080/

添加 Vuetify 组件

Vuetify 是 Vue.js 的 Material Design 组件库。也可以换用其他的,如 Element 等。


添加 Vuetify :

cd my-app
vue add vuetify

preset 选择 Default

? Choose a preset: Default (recommended)

添加完成后,编辑下 tsconfig.json

"compilerOptions": {
"types": [
- "webpack-env"
+ "webpack-env",
+ "vuetify"


yarn serve

浏览器打开 http://localhost:8080/

编辑 tsconfig.json 是为了修正如下错误

ERROR in /Users/John/Codes/ikuokuo/start-electron/my-app/src/plugins/vuetify.ts(2,21):
2:21 Could not find a declaration file for module 'vuetify/lib'. '/Users/John/Codes/ikuokuo/start-electron/my-app/node_modules/vuetify/lib/index.js' implicitly has an 'any' type.
Try `npm install @types/vuetify` if it exists or add a new declaration (.d.ts) file containing `declare module 'vuetify/lib';`
1 | import Vue from "vue";
> 2 | import Vuetify from "vuetify/lib";
| ^

4 | Vue.use(Vuetify);

添加 Electron 构建

如果你可以建一个网站,你就可以建一个桌面应用程序。 Electron 负责将 Web 构建成原生桌面应用。

而将 Vue.js 应用构建成 Electron 应用,现在用 Vue CLI Plugin Electron Builder 即可。

首先,指明下 node 版本:

yarn add @types/node@12 --dev

之后,添加 Electron Builder :

cd my-app
vue add electron-builder

Electron 版本选择 9.0.0

? Choose Electron Version ^9.0.0

添加完成后,编辑下 src/router/index.ts

const router = new VueRouter({
- mode: "history",
+ mode: process.env.IS_ELECTRON ? "hash" : "history",
base: process.env.BASE_URL,

export default router;


yarn electron:serve


命令定义在了 package.json

"scripts": {
"serve": "vue-cli-service serve",
"build": "vue-cli-service build",
"lint": "vue-cli-service lint",
"electron:build": "vue-cli-service electron:build",
"electron:serve": "vue-cli-service electron:serve",
"postinstall": "electron-builder install-app-deps",
"postuninstall": "electron-builder install-app-deps"

yarn 执行即可,如下:

$ yarn lint
yarn run v1.22.4
$ vue-cli-service lint
DONE No lint errors found!
✨ Done in 3.17s.

yarn add @types/node@12 --dev 是为了修正如下错误

ERROR in /Users/John/Codes/ikuokuo/start-electron/my-app/node_modules/electron/electron.d.ts(1659,31):
1659:31 Cannot extend an interface 'NodeJS.EventEmitter'. Did you mean 'implements'?

编辑 src/router/index.ts 是为了修正如下警告

 WARN  It is detected that you are using Vue Router. If you are using history mode, you must push the default route when the root component is loaded. Learn more at .

发布 Electron 应用

Vue 应用了 Electron Builder 插件,所以直接用此工具即可。


yarn electron:build 编译发布:

# 淘宝镜像,国内下载 Electron 更快

# macOS 下禁用签名。若要签名,见最后参考

cd my-app
yarn electron:build

dist_electron/ 下即是发布内容。

例如 macOS 可见打包好的 dmg

双击 dmg 试用或安装:

若要修改发布格式或内容,见 Electron Builder 文档:

export CSC_IDENTITY_AUTO_DISCOVERY=false 是为了避免如下错误
