Generate a DMG with Electron Forge to distribute your Electron app on macOS.

The DMG target builds .dmg files, which are the standard format for sharing macOS apps. The DMG acts like a zip file, but provides an easy way for users to take the app and put it in the /Applications directory.

You can only build the DMG target on macOS machines.

Configuration options are documented in MakerDMGConfig.

    format: 'ULFO'
