electron-regedit

File associations, file icons & open with... for electron apps

This module allows you to register your app in the windows registry, manipulate context menus & handle native open, edit, print, preview actions ect.

Installation

npm install electron-regedit

Usage

Toy Example

As a short documentation, here is how the module is used:

const {ProgId, ShellOption, Regedit} = require('electron-regedit')

new ProgId({
    description: 'My App File',
    icon: 'myicon.ico',
    extensions: ['myapp'],
    shell: [
        new ShellOption({verb: ShellOption.OPEN}),
        new ShellOption({verb: ShellOption.EDIT, args: ['--edit']}),
        new ShellOption({verb: ShellOption.PRINT, args: ['--print']})
    ]
})

Regedit.installAll()

Squirrel integration

You will need to call Regedit.installAll() and Regedit.uninstallAll() when installing/uninstalling your application to clean up the registry. If you are using Squirrel there is a helping function to handle this. It is very important that all instantions of new ProgId({...}) have been done before handling Squirrel events or installing/uninstalling into the registry.

const {Regedit} = require('electron-regedit')

//... instantiate your ProgIds

if (Regedit.squirrelStartupEvent()) return

//... the rest of your application code
