Cross compilation

To cross compile your project simply run

v -os windows .


v -os linux .

[!NOTE] Cross-compiling a windows binary on a linux machine requires the GNU C compiler for MinGW-w64 (targeting Win64) to first be installed.

For Ubuntu/Debian based distributions:

sudo apt install gcc-mingw-w64-x86-64

For Arch based distributions:

sudo pacman -S mingw-w64-gcc

(Cross compiling for macOS is temporarily not possible.)

If you don't have any C dependencies, that's all you need to do. This works even when compiling GUI apps using the ui module or graphical apps using gg.

You will need to install Clang, LLD linker, and download a zip file with libraries and include files for Windows and Linux. V will provide you with a link.
