flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists --system appcenter https://flatpak.elementary.io/repo.flatpakrepo flatpak install -y appcenter io.elementary.Platform io.elementary.Sdk
flatpak-builder build com.github.photostat_editor.photostat.yml --user --install --force-clean
Once the command above is complete, you'll be able to launch the app from your applications list.
