The tauri.conf.json is a file generated by the tauri init command (see here) that lives in your Tauri application source directory (src-tauri).

Once generated, you may modify it at will to customize your Tauri application.

It's composed of the following properties:


distDir: string
The path—either absolute or relative—to the production-ready webpage/webapp directory that will be bundled by Tauri.
devPath: string
Can be a path—either absolute or relative—to a folder or a URL (like a live reload server).
beforeDevCommand?: string
A command to run before starting Tauri in dev mode.
beforeBuildCommand?: string
A command to run before starting Tauri in build mode.
withGlobalTauri?: boolean
Enables the API injection to the window.__TAURI__ object. Useful if you're using Vanilla JS instead of importing the API using Rollup or Webpack. Reduces the command security since any external code can access it, so be careful with XSS attacks.

  "distDir": "../dist",
  "devPath": "http://localhost:4000",

name?: string
Application binary name. Converted to snake-case on Linux.
version?: string
Application version.
