This project is a parallel fork of
node-ptyproviding prebuilt packages for certain Node.js and Electron versions.
UsageThanks to the excellent
prebuild-installmodules, using this module is extremely easy. You merely have to change your
node-pty-prebuiltand then change any
requirestatements in your code from
NOTE: We started shipping prebuilds as of node-pty version 0.7.3, no prior versions are provided! If you were using an earlier version of
node-ptyyou will need to update your code to account for any API changes that may have occurred.
How It WorksWe maintain a parallel fork of the
node-ptycodebase that will be updated as new releases are shipped. When we merge new updates to the code into the
prebuildbranch, new prebuilt packages for our supported Node.js and Electron versions are updated to the corresponding GitHub release.
node-pty-prebuiltis installed as a package dependency, the
installscript checks to see if there's a prebuilt package on this repo for the OS, ABI version, and architecture of the current process and then downloads it, extracting it into the module path. If a corresponding prebuilt package is not found,
node-gypis invoked to build the package for the current platform.
Prebuilt VersionsWe currently build packages for all versions of Node.js and Electron that are supported by the
prebuildmodule. You can see the full list of versions by checking out the
