This was so helpful, thank you Johannes!

Has anyone gotten the Electron frontend import of electron working in Svelte? I'd like to use ipcRenderer in my Svelte frontend to kick off a Node process in the Electron main script, but I get errors for the 'fs' and 'path' imports that Electron uses whenever I try.

Update: I found this StackOverflow discussion super helpful: stackoverflow.com/a/59888788. The solution isn't anything dependent on Svelte's behavior, but using the preload functionality within Electron.
