Electron Uncaught ReferenceError: require is not defined 2021 even nodeIntegration is true



This “require is not defined” is pretty annoying to me as Electron user.

Last year when I got this problem, I can simply solve it by adding: nodeIntegration: true.

But this time, on 2021, this problem comes again. So to solve it we need to add another thing here: contextIsolation: false.

I don’t know is it going to be a new game next year or what.

So, right now my main.js file to make my Electron program running is this:

const { ipcMain, app, BrowserWindow } = require('electron');
 
function createWindow () {
    const win = new BrowserWindow({
        width: 1280,
        height: 720,
        webPreferences: {
            nodeIntegration: true,
			contextIsolation: false,
            enableRemoteModule: true,
        }
    })
 
    win.loadFile('index.html');
    win.webContents.openDevTools();
	win.removeMenu();
     
}
 
app.whenReady().then(createWindow);
 
app.on('window-all-closed', () => {
    app.quit();
});
 
app.on('activate', () => {
    if (BrowserWindow.getAllWindows().length === 0) {
        createWindow();
    }
})
 
ipcMain.on('quitprogram', (evt, arg) => {
    app.quit();
});
loading...
