Cordova Electron 3.1.0 Released!
By: Bryan Ellis
30 May 2022

We are happy to announce that we have just released Cordova Electron 3.1.0! This is one of Cordova's supported platforms for building Electron applications.

To upgrade:

cordova platform remove electron
cordova platform add electron@3.1.0

To install:

cordova platform add electron@3.1.0

Release Highlights

Some of the notable changes & new features in this release are:

Electron Update:

The Electron core dependencies have been updated to 14.2.9.

Defining & Pinning Electron Version

The ability to define and pin specific Electron versions has been added. This feature leveraged the usage of npm's overrides property, which was introduced in npm 8.


In the Cordova app's package.json file, add the following:

"overrides": {
  "cordova-electron": {
    "electron": "14.2.9",

If you already have the platform added to the project, you will need to remove the platform or delete the platforms directory before running cordova prepare electron to recheckout the pinned version. If you also have in your project director the package-lock.json file, this will also need to be removed.

For a quick start guide and in-depth configuration setup, please check out our Cordova Electron Documentation!
