What is the best way to build electron applications with copr? There is a project that allows to easily generate rpm package from a repository with electron application ( ). However, it does not play nice with copr as the last one requires *.spec file or srpm file.

What is the best/fastest way to approach that problem?

As far as I can tell, it seems that (as expected!) it is also using a .spec file to generate RPMs, so you should be able to get the spec file and build the RPM yourself. BTW, it also describes the structure of an Electron app, so you should be able to create a spec file yourself too.

I don't recommed the use of "redhat" trademark... or you project is sponsored by redhat? other problem some apps provides a ffmpeg bundled; then copr is very strict with it... You need forever a ".spec" file for make a ".src.rpm" and build a rpm. If your app makes a src.rpm then you can use copr-cli and build directly in your copr repository.
