I’ve used Electron standalone before, and
console.log() commands in
main.js worked just fine (output to IDE console) and the
electron-reload module also worked fine when content changes were detected in the Electron root folder.
I’ve now started a new Ionic 5 project, and added Electron to the project via Capacitor. Capacitor makes a few necessary changes to Electron (e.g. renaming main.js to index.js etc), I’ve now also have to start electron via capacitor
npx cap open electron .
In doing so,
console.log() commands in index.js are now NOT being output to the IDE console, errors are not being output to console, and the
electron-reload module now serves a blank page when changes are detected… the only console output that I get is:
$ npx cap open electron [info] Opening Electron project at ...
Is this a capacitor limitation or what configurations must be done to make this work ?
also updated electron to latest 9.0.4 - same result.
