Learning how to create desktop electron app from Rust Wasm/WebAssembly
version: 1.0 date: 2019-04-05 author: repository: GitHub


Hashtags: #rustlang #game #tutorial
My projects on Github are more like a tutorial than a finished product: bestia-dev tutorials.

Based on Dodrio Virtual Dom memory game mem1.
Electron is Cross Platform - compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux.


This version of electron uses a problematic minimst version. I don't have intention to upgrade the dependencies. This is just a learning project. CVE-2020-7598 high severity Vulnerable versions: >= 1.0.0, < 1.2.3 Patched version: 1.2.3 minimist before 1.2.2 could be tricked into adding or modifying properties of Object.prototype using a "constructor" or "proto" payload.

The source code of the original app is here:
Learning to use Dodrio virtual DOM on a simple memory game for kids.
The images are funny cartoon characters from the alphabet.
The cards grid is only 4x4.

How to install Electron on Windows

1. install NodeJS 11 the latest version. It will install also npm.
It didn't work for me with the version 10.

1. install Nodejs 11 - the latest version. It will also install npm - the packet manager.
It didn't work correctly for me with Nodejs version 10. I don't know why.

2. Install electron

npm i -D electron@latest

Clone and run mem1_electron example code

3. Clone mem1_electron code example. It will create a new folder.

git clone

4. move to the new folder

cd mem1_electron

5. Install all needed referenced libraries

npm install

6. build and start the new electron application

npm start

Create a package for distribution

7. install electron-packager

npm install electron-packager -g

8. create a folder with all files for distribution. You can then zip it and publish it.

electron-packager .

I published the zip file in GitHub Release:
Download it, unzip it and execute the file mem1_electron.exe.

I hope it will work for you as it did for me.
