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 is available from: https://userbase.kde.org/KDevelop4/Manual
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 .
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
the CMake arguments.
