What is this?
Here you can find the recipes to build KDE's flatpak runtime, namely org.kde.Platform and its org.kde.Sdk. It's a set of libraries that should offer a wide range of library to use in Qt applications, be KDE from or not.

Getting to grips
Issues can be reported here: https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Qt%2FKDE%20Flatpak%20Runtime
Here you can find some documentation on how to get the big picture of Flatpak usage in KDE: https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Flatpak
There's a different branch for each version of Qt. The KDE Frameworks version updates with it as new stable releases become available.
This can generally be built with flatpak-builder as explained in its documentation. There's a Makefile to make it a bit easier to trigger:
- ARCH: Should be one of the offered by
flatpak --supported-arches. Static qemu builds can be used for cross-compilation. Defaults to
- INSTALL_SOURCE: Where to get the dependencies from. Defaults to flathub.
- EXPORT_ARGS: Extra arguments to pass to flatpak-builder.
make remoteswill add flathub.
make checkwill make sure the json file is valid.
make org.kde.Sdk.appbuilds the SDK.
