Building Flatpaks

Flatpak can be used to create packages (flatpaks) for applications that can be installed locally or published in a repository. These are usually built using the flatpak-builder tool. The sections below cover the concepts behind Flatpak, building applications for testing on the development workstation, and cross-building applications for deployment on the Librem 5.

General management and installation of flatpaks is described in the Package Management chapter of the documentation.
