# Build for macOS yarn build:macos # Build for Windows yarn build:win # Build for Linux yarn build:linux
Other Linux targets
If you would like to build for another Linux target, run the following command:
export LINUX_TARGET=<target> yarn build:linux
<target> with your desired target (e.g.
rpm). Have a look at the documentation for
electron-builder for the available targets. Multiple targets can be combined by comma separation (e.g.
rpm,deb). Note that we cannot offer support for uncommon targets.
Furthermore, you can disable asar packaging (not recommended, but e.g. needed for target
dir) by setting
ENABLE_ASAR="false" before building. Example:
export ENABLE_ASAR="false" yarn build:linux
