README

KDevelop

This repository contains the source code for the KDevelop IDE.

The idea that this repository contains

  • Every plugin related to C/C++ development
  • Every plugin only specific for KDevelop (e.g. the Welcome Page plugin)

User Documentation

User documentation is available from: https://userbase.kde.org/KDevelop4/Manual

Compile

KDevelop is built the same way as most KDE projects, using CMake to set up a build directory and build options. For detailed instructions how to compile KDevelop, please refer to the Wiki: https://community.kde.org/KDevelop/HowToCompile_v5 .

Optional dependencies

Most of KDevelop's optional dependencies are opportunistic under the assumption that the build should always use all available functionality, as well as the most recent version. CMake has a lesser known feature to control which of such dependencies is used.

For instance, to skip building the Subversion plugin, use -DCMAKE_DISABLE_FIND_PACKAGE_SubversionLibrary=ON. To use QtWebKit instead of QtWebEngine for documentation rendering when both are available, add -DCMAKE_DISABLE_FIND_PACKAGE_Qt5WebEngineWidgets=ON to the CMake arguments.
