In Electron Fiddle, you can include asset files (such as images, stylesheets, or other resources) in your Electron app by following these steps:
Create a New Project: Launch Electron Fiddle and create a new Electron project by clicking on "Create new Fiddle" or "New Fiddle" in the menu.
Add Asset Files: To include asset files, you can place them in the
appfolder of your Electron Fiddle project. The
appfolder is where your application's source files are located. You can create subdirectories inside the
appfolder to organize your assets better. For example:
my-electron-fiddle/ |-- app/ | |-- index.html | |-- assets/ | |-- logo.png | |-- styles.css | |-- main.js | |-- preload.js
In the above example, we have created an
assets folder inside the
app folder and placed the
styles.css files as asset files.
index.html, you can use the following code to display the image and apply the CSS styles:
<html> <head> <title>My Electron Fiddle</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="assets/styles.css"> </head> <body> <img src="assets/logo.png" alt="Logo"> <h1>Hello Electron Fiddle!</h1> </body> </html>
- Run the Electron App:
Save your changes and click on the "Run" button or press
Cmd + R(Mac) or
Ctrl + R(Windows/Linux) to run your Electron app with the included asset files. The Electron app will load and display the
index.htmlfile with the referenced assets.
Note: Electron Fiddle provides a live-reloading feature, so you don't need to restart the app every time you make changes to your code or assets. Simply save your changes, and Electron Fiddle will automatically update and refresh the app.
By following these steps, you can easily include asset files in your Electron Fiddle project and use them in your Electron app. This allows you to enhance the app's user interface and functionality with images, styles, and other resources.
