IntroductionThis section will cover how to use pre-installed libraries and how to install new libraries.
Using existing libraries
Quark comes pre-installed with a few libraries. You can check which libraries are pre-installed by going to
Help > View Installed Libraries from the main menu.
This will open a dialog listing all the pre-installed libraries.
Some of these libraries are used internally by the software, some of these libraries are proxied and exposed as an API, and some are used by the build system. Nonetheless all of them can be used from your project. Find out specific tutorials of using some of those libraries here.
Installing new libraries
Once you are comfortable with the Quark software and using the built-in functions/features, you may want to extend the ability of your project with additional libraries.
Using the built-in npm client
To install a new library in your project you can use the built-in npm client. Click on the
npm logo in the sideview to open the client, and search for the library you want to use.
You can install the library by pressing on the
install button, or first view the library repository by pressing on the
After hitting the install button, you will be presented with an install status snackbar. If installing the library fails, you can check the logs from the

yarn) you can use that too.
# e.g. npm npm install express # e.g. yarn yarn add express
