Whatsapp Desktop on armbian
#1
I've done this on armbian, but I imagine it'll work on other distros too. Open a terminal in armbian, then issue:

su

apt-get install npm

git clone https://github.com/Enrico204/Whatsapp-Desktop.git

cd Whatsapp-Desktop 

nano package.json  

Make this edit:

"build:linux": "electron-packager ./app \"WhatsApp\" --out=dist --platform=linux --arch=x64 --version=1.4.3 --icon=assets/win/whatsapp.ico"

to

"build:linux": "electron-packager ./app \"WhatsApp\" --out=dist --platform=linux --arch=armv7l --version=1.4.3 --icon=assets/win/whatsapp.ico"

Exit nano and save changes. Back in terminal, follow the usual build instructions:

Code:
npm install
cd app/
npm install
cd ..
npm run build:linux

Change the current directory to the output folder (after the fairly quick compilation completes)

cd dist/Whatsapp-Desktop-armv7l/

Launch the app:

./Whatsapp 

I set the app to start and automatically log in using the tick-boxes in the settings menu. The app was in the system-tray after a reboot, and worked just fine after a refresh (ctrl+r)

Hi,

I just expanded the build configuration to have ARMv7l target "build:linuxarmv7l". I've also added prebuilt images as ZIP and DEB packages :-)

Regards

Yes, I saw you picked it up from someone, but I didn't realise it was that recent. I think you've done a great job so far. Works perfect!
