Building for distribution
To test building for distribution you can install Docker and run
yarn dockerdist:platform where "platform" is either "linux" or "win". To build for macOS a macOS computer is required.
If you don't want to user Docker but instead want to build locally, there are a few dependencies you're required to install.
