Known issues that can happen during development

Error building node-pty

If after building during development you get an alert dialog related to node-pty issues, make sure its build process is working correctly by running yarn run rebuild-node-pty.

If you are on macOS, this typically is related to Xcode issues (like not having agreed to the Terms of Service by running sudo xcodebuild after a fresh Xcode installation).

Error with codesign on macOS when running yarn run dist

If you have issues in the codesign step when running yarn run dist on macOS, you can temporarily disable code signing locally by setting export CSC_IDENTITY_AUTO_DISCOVERY=false for the current terminal session.
