Install Electron Fiddle on Raspberry Pi
Electron Fiddle lets you create and play with small Electron experiments.
It greets you with a quick-start template after opening – change a few things, choose the version of Electron you want to run it with, and play around.
Then, save your Fiddle either as a GitHub Gist or to a local folder.
Once pushed to GitHub, anyone can quickly try your Fiddle out by just entering it in the address bar.
To run: Menu -> Accesories -> Electron Fiddle
To run in a terminal: electron-fiddle
Fortunately, Electron Fiddle is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.
