Mac binary for mender-artifact

      With our new application-based onboarding (MEN-2363), the user will create a Mender Artifact for testing purposes to deploy to a device. However, we only have a Linux binary provided for the mender-artifact tool, which is required to do this, and Mac is a popular development environment. Not supporting Mac would leave out a substantial share of users from successfully completing onboarding, and in general use mender-artifact in their development environment.

      User value (why)

      • Mac users can complete application based onboarding
      • Mac users can in general use mender-artifact easily by downloading a precompiled version

      Size (SP)

      • TBD

      Acceptance criteria (strikethrough means completed)

      • A binary version of mender-artifact is provided for download
      • Onboarding (MEN-2363) updated to use the latest stable Mac version (Manuel is constantly testing with Mac)
      • After every stable release, mender-artifact for Mac is also released and onboarding uses this latest release
      • Gzip compression works, LZMA is a stretch goal (not required for this first iteration)
      • Stretch goal: mender-artifact is packaged in a Mac package format (research needed if this makes sense/is easier)
