Neuron - ES6 React Electron Starter Kit

NoteThis project is a work in progress. I welcome any feedback, and support.

Neuron is a very simple starter kit for anyone wanting to create desktop applications with Electron. It comes complete with a handful of useful tools to make killer desktop applications.


  • PouchDB
  • ES6 support via Babel
  • React
  • Webpack
  • Sass


git clone
cd Neuron
npm install


Running npm start will build the JS and CSS files and launch the Electron application.


The Electron entry point is a file called app.js stored in the root directory.



All CSS files are stored in the app/css/ directory. Sass is built in by default allowing you to easily build CSS componenets/modules with the added benefits of Sass.


All JS files are stored in the app/js/ directory. ES6 and React is supported out of the box.


Running npm start or npm run build will build both the JS and CSS into single bundles. We keep the JS and CSS bundles seperate which allows you to include your CSS at the top of a HTML file and the JS at the bottom to avoid having the CSS render after the page has loaded.
