The build target is divided into two subdestinations:
- backend which requires Go Stable, the required version is defined in go.mod. make frontend which requires
- Node.js LTS or higher and Internet connectivity to download npm dependencies.
When building from the official source tarballs that include pre-built frontend files, the frontend target will not be activated, making it possible to build without Node.js and internet connectivity.
Parallelism (make -j <num>) is not supported.
