Building From Source

To build Bob from source, clone the repo and run npm install. Then, run npm run dev to start a local development server. Note that changes to code running in Electron’s main process will require a restart of the development server.

To package the application for Mac, run npm run package. This will create a DMG and app bundle. Similarly, to bundle for Windows or Linux run npm run package-win or npm run package-linux, respectively.
