electron-prebuilt-compile is a drop-in replacement for electron-prebuilt that natively understands ES6 + React + LESS + some other languages, powered by electron-compile.


Download and install the latest build of electron for your OS and add it to your projects package.json as a devDependency:

npm install electron-prebuilt-compile --save-dev

Now you can just run electron to run electron:


Electron will now understand ES6/ES7 and React components out-of-the-box, even in inline HTML:

  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/less" href="main.less" />

<body id="host">
  <script type="application/javascript">
  import React from 'react';
  import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
  import TodoApp from './components/TodoApp';
  ReactDOM.render(React.createComponent(TodoApp), document.getElementById('host'));
