31.6 Flutter App Bundle for Linux


See https://docs.flutter.dev/deployment/linux and examples in https://github.com/AppFlowy-IO/AppFlowy/tree/main/frontend/scripts

Linux Snap

  • Create snap/snapcraft.yaml, snap/gui/bstim.desktop, snap/gui/bstim.png;

  • Run snapcraft from the root of the project;

  • For a local machine install snap install --dangerous bstim.snap.

The build from snapcraft can take some time, setting up a VM to do the build.

Linux Tar

  • Build the app with flutter build linux

  • Create a tar archive with tar --transform 's|^build/linux/x64/release/bundle|app|' -czvf app-0.0.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz build/linux/x64/release/bundle

  • Extract the archive with tar -xzvf app-0.0.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

  • Run the app with ./app/app

You can create an alias for running the app with alias app /path/to/app/app
