The Flatpak target builds .flatpak files, which is a packaging format for Linux distributions that allows for sandboxed installation of applications in isolation from the rest of their system. Unlike typical deb or RPM installation methods which are not sandboxed.

You can only build the Flatpak target if you have flatpak and flatpak-builder installed on your system.

Configuration options are documented in MakerFlatpakConfig.
