Electron on ppc64le
The build process is greatly simplified from Porting/Chromium due to Electron's built-in chromium patching mechanism. User:Shawnanastasio has created a fork of the electron repository that contains all the required patches at https://github.com/shawnanastasio/electron.
Before building, you will need to set up your build environment. This includes setting the required environment variables, obtaining the dependencies, and building an llvm toolchain. You can follow the first part of the instructions at Porting/Chromium to accomplish this.
The rest of the process closely mirrors the upstream Electron build instructions, but with a few additions.
