How to flatpak?

Attempted to flatpak my app today. First attempt didn’t go so well… although I’m not very good with creating these new package formats. (such as Snap etc)

Hey @DylanC,

I guess I’m the flatpak guy around here.

Your source definition is not correct. You need to specific a git hash, and use URL, not path:

  "sources": [                
 {                    
 "type": "git", 
"url": "https://github.com/test/test.git", 
"commit": "10506de9"
}           
  ]       
  },

Sorry for the sloppy formatting, I’m on mobile.

Oh no problem. I’ll try that. Afterwards I will look to include graphicsmagick via modules (I guess) http://docs.flatpak.org/en/latest/manifests.html#modules.

I’ll see if I can help

I’ve added graphicsmagick as a module now. Seems to download and try to compile but not detect a compiler.

Do I need to add gcc as a module?

No, you shouldn’t need to add GCC. Are you using flatoak-builder?

Yes, I’m using flatpak builder in the terminal.
