Debian packages

Tauri allows your app to be packaged as a .deb (Debian package) file.

Bootstrapper

Instead of launching the app directly, you can configure the bundled app to run a script that tries to expose the environment variables to the app; without that, you'll have trouble using system programs because the PATH environment variable isn't correct. Enable it with the useBootstrapper config.

Custom files

To include custom files to the debian package, you can configure a mapping on tauri.conf.json > tauri > bundle > deb > files as follows:

{
"tauri": {
"bundle": {
"deb": {
"files": {
"/usr/lib/README.md": "../README.md", // copies the README.md file to /usr/lib/README.md
"usr/lib/assets": "../public/" // copies the entire public directory to /usr/lib/assets
}
}
}
}
}
note

Each files object key is the path on the Debian package, and the value is a path to a file or directory relative to the tauri.conf.json file.
