Question: Vite (Vue3) with electron - Best approach to encode?

See original GitHub issue

Hi Osama and thank you for this amazing project.

I am using vite which creates a static html and js file which I then import to electron.

I would like to encrypt this .js file, preferably with some automatic way while building with electron-builder or vite’s included rollup.

I have successfully used bytenode for the electron .js files but can’t figure out how to do the same for the client files. How would you suggest is the best way to compile and load it within the html?


<html lang="en">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/_assets/style.8c7bb816.css">
  <body class="w-screen h-full min-h-screen min-w-screen font-body">
    <div id="app"></div>
      // I assume 'bytenode' and 'fs' will be loaded by electron's node_modules
      const fs = require('fs');
      const bytenode = require('bytenode');
      if (!fs.existsSync('/_assets/main.jsc')) {
        bytenode.compileFile('/_assets/main.js', '/_assets/main.jsc');

      //How exactly should I load the jsc? This was loaded as a module before...
      require('/_assets/main.jsc'); //<-- Example's getHTML function is not available within vue. Should I just request the jsc and only that?

    <!--  <script type="module" src="/_assets/main.js"></script>-->

Unfortunately the above does not compile automatically when built with electron.

I would greatly appreciate your help. Many Thanks

Thank you @OsamaAbbas for these details. I will try it with the default electro-quick-start example and indeed maybe my problem is with electron-builder. Many thanks for your help.
