## Cross Compilation

Gio can be cross-complied for platforms other than the current OS, but this requires an appropriate cross-compiler for any native code integrations. Cross-compilation is most easily achieved from Linux, and the Linux instructions can be followed within a container or VM from other platforms.

### From Linux

- `macOS`: a cross-compiler like [osxcross](https://github.com/tpoechtrager/osxcross) as well as the macOS SDK (see link for instructions).
- `Windows`: no special compiler is needed, as we don't use CGo for Windows support.
