What is the best practice approach to transfer my ROS solution: c++-based nodes, python-based nodes, launch files, config files, ... to a target platform, excluding the source code?

Which folders from my own catkin workspace are needed?

And is there any way to find the minimal ROS package set, I need to install on the target?

Ahhh, I now found a snap package tutorial: Looks like worth having a look at. But I will leave the question open a little while, your comments are still appreciated.

Answering my own - now old - question: the catkin_ws install dir seems to hold everything if the CMakelists files have proper definitions on what to install.
