Frappe Books is built on Vue.js and Electron. It is offline by default and uses a local SQLite file as the database.
To get the dev environment up and running you need to first set up Node.js version 16.13.1 and npm. For this, we suggest using nvm.
Next, you will need to install yarn.
Once you are through the Pre-requisites, you can run the following commands to setup Frappe Books for development and building:
# clone the repository git clone https://github.com/frappe/books.git # change directory cd books # install dependencies yarn
To run Frappe Books in development mode (with hot reload, etc):
# start the electron app yarn electron:serve
To build Frappe Books and create an installer:
# start the electron app yarn electron:build
Note By default the above command will build for your computer's operating system and architecture. To build for other environments (example: for linux from a windows computer) check the Building section at electron.build/cli.
So to build for linux you could use the
--linux flag like so:
yarn electron:build --linux.
