New to Kendo UI for jQuery? Download free 30-day trial


Electron is a framework for creating native desktop applications with web technologies like JavaScript, HTML, and CSS.

To use Kendo UI in your Electron projects, include the required JavaScript and CSS files.

Using Local Files

Due to the Node.js integration of Electron, some extra symbols were inserted into the DOM—module, exports, and require. To include the scripts, use the require symbol.

<link href="lib/css/kendo.default-main.css" rel="stylesheet">

<script>window.$ = window.jQuery = require('./lib/js/jquery.min.js');</script>

Using CDN Services

Before you include the jQuery library, unset module.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">    

<script>if (typeof module === 'object') {window.module = module; module = undefined;}</script>
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script></head>
<script>if (window.module) module = window.module;</script>

Basic Usage

The following example assumes that the Kendo UI scripts and stylesheets were added to the document.

<div id="grid"></div>
    columns: [
        { field: "name" },
        { field: "age" }
    dataSource: {
        data: [
            { name: "Jane Doe", age: 30 },
            { name: "John Doe", age: 33 }

Application Distribution

For more information on how to distribute your application with Electron, refer to the official Electron documentation on application distribution.

Alternatively, you can use a third-party packaging tool such as:
