Cross platform build system

I have seen a few Gtk-based Python applications and all of them use Meson. It seems the way to go for Flatpak.

However on platforms where Flatpak doesn’t exist, can I use Meson, for say creating an installer on Windows or something similar on Mac?

I use Windows for dev and though I am a bit familiar with WSL, I am completely unaware how I would distribute a Python GTK app on MacOS.

I can completely ditch Meson altogether and go the PyInstaller way too, which is my first resort for Windows.

Meson is cross-platform - you’ll want to use your meson build scripts to make artifacts for specific platforms.
