Widget Factory

Showcase tool for Qt widgets styles, designed for testing new themes.


In order to build and install Widget Factory you need Qt 5.1 or better with at least the following modules:

  • qtbase
  • qtjsbackend (doesn't exist on Qt >= 5.2)
  • qtdeclarative
  • qtquickcontrols

You can either build Qt from git yourself or download binaries.

More information about building Qt 5 from can be found here:

Qt 5 binaries can be downloaded from


Building Widget Factory is a piece of cake.

Assuming you are in the source directory, just create a build directory and run cmake:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/hawaii ..

To do a debug build the last command can be:


To do a release build instead it can be:

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/hawaii -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..

If not passed, the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX parameter defaults to /usr/local. You have to specify a path that fits your needs, /opt/hawaii is just an example.

Package maintainers would pass -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr.

The CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE parameter allows the following values:

  • Debug: debug build
  • Release: release build
  • RelWithDebInfo: release build with debugging information


It's really easy, it's just a matter of typing:

make install

from the build directory.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
