Electron has a native method that allows you to hide the dock icon, but it will pop up at the startup anyway and only hide later. In turn, electron-builder should support this.

Please use https://github.com/electron-userland/electron-builder/wiki/Options#MacOptions-extendInfo to add any custom Info.plist entries.
e.g. set

"mac": {
  "extendInfo": {
    "LSUIElement": 1
  }
}

* #65 (comment)

* "Probably best to set show: opts.debug for debugging purposes."

* "shall we add show: false to the server too?"

* "there's a few more createBrowserWindow calls" "Moreover, here too we should set show: opts.debug."

* `remote.createBrowserWindow`'s `show` parameter appears to treat `undefined` as true. This commit performs like casting to a Boolean.

* "On Windows and Linux, setting this to true should keep the electron window from displaying in the taskbar, which I believe to be desirable for making image export a seamless experience for Windows and Linux Python/R users. I think this change would just involve adding the skipTaskbar option everywhere the show option is added."

* "To hide the electron icon from the dock on OS X it is recommended (electron-userland/electron-builder#1456) to add "extendInfo": {"LSUIElement": 1} to the top-level mac configuration settings"

* Manual reverting of changes in package.json from previous commits on `forbid-popup-windows`
