GeneralWriting C++ code on Windows to build for Windows and Linux Pin

I have to write C++ code and build for 3 platforms: Windows, Linux and MacOS.

I am writing C++ code on Windows to build for both Windows and Linux, using Cygwin platform.

I could also build Objective-C++ with Cygwin on Windows to check for syntax errors, but that binary is not runnable on macOS, to test and run on MacOS, I still have to build the code on MacOS. Bringing Windows laptop and Macbook to the office on public transportation is no fun.
