Electron and JQuery

Electron and JQuery

A better an more generic solution IMO:

<!-- Insert this line above script imports  -->
<script>if (typeof module === 'object') {window.module = module; module = undefined;}</script>

<!-- normal script imports etc  -->
<script src="scripts/jquery.min.js"></script>    
<script src="scripts/vendor.js"></script>    

<!-- Insert this line after script imports -->
<script>if (window.module) module = window.module;</script>


  • Works for both browser and electron with the same code
  • Fixes issues for ALL 3rd-party libraries (not just jQuery) without having to specify each one
  • Script Build / Pack Friendly (i.e. Grunt / Gulp all scripts into vendor.js)
  • Does NOT require node-integration to be false
