Install for nwjs

For an application that is built using NW.js you'll need to have the engines['nw.js'] set to the version of NW.js that you are targeting in your root package.json file.

For example if you have an NS.js app that's targeting version 0.12.0 your package.json file would look something like

  "name": "nw-app",
  "displayName": "My NW.js app",
  "version": "0.0.1",
  "description": "",
  "engines": {
    "nw.js": "0.12.0"

And when doing an npm install inside of your NW.js app's root folder it will compile NodeGit targeting that version of NW.js during the install.

NOTE: there are no pre-built binaries for NW.js, you must rebuild NodeGit. Visit our building guides for help
