The recommended way to install the required components on Windows is to install the Chocolatey package manager.
Once it’s installed, run the following commands in the PowerShell console as
choco install nvm
choco install git
If you’re using PowerShell without privileged access, run:
nvm install 10.18.1
When installation is complete, dependencies of the
src/ directory are also installed.
$ npm install
Run the following command in the PowerShell console as
> .\scripts\Makefile.ps1 Install-Deps
If the above command fails, it might be due to not having the right policy to install. You can temporarily change the policy using:
> Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force;
On Windows there is no default
libpng-dev available. Currently the best option is to install Visual Studio Community, which provides the dependencies required to build the package.
$ npm run build
After building is done, you can execute the application with
Package specific files of
src/ directory as distributable formats with
Files are defined in
