Distribution Overview

There are several ways to distribute Neutralinojs apps: creating portable zip files, standalone setup files, and network-based small setup files. You can select an option according to your application distribution preference.

Application build results#

The neu build command generates the following files on any supported operating system into the dist directory.

Selecting files for packaging#

The neu CLI generates application binaries for all supported platforms at once. These binaries are pre-built binaries. Therefore, please check our security policy before you continue with the distribution process.

As the first step for packaging, you can pick two files for each targeted operating system: application binary and the resource file. For example, if you need to make an application package for x64 Linux computers, pick myapp-linux_x64 and the res.neu file. The res.neu contains all application resources, so, double click on the binary and check whether the resource file is not corrupted.
