Compilation

Prerequisites - Install KArchive

On Linux, you need to install karchive before compiling FastQt.
From ubuntu >xenial you can install it from repositories :

 sudo apt install libkf5archive-dev

From fedora >= 24 you can install it from repositories :

sudo dnf install kf5-karchive-devel

From source :

git clone git://anongit.kde.org/extra-cmake-modules
cd extra-cmake-modules
mkdir build && cd build    
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/
make && sudo make install
cd ../..
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/karchive.git
cd karchive
mkdir build && cd build 
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/
make 
sudo make install

** From Windows **
Nothing to do. Compiled library are avaible in win32 directory.

Install Qt >5.7

From website : Download Qt > 5.7 from https://www.qt.io/.
Don't forget to check QtChart module during installation.

From ubuntu : Qt 5.7 is not yet avaible with ubuntu. But you can add PPA to your software system. For exemple from xenial

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:beineri/opt-qt57-xenial
sudo apt-get install qt57base qt57charts-no-lgpl
source /opt/qt57/bin/qt57-env.sh

From fedora : Qt 5.7 is avaible

sudo dnf install qt5-qtbase-devel qt5-qtcharts-devel 

Compile FastQt

Be sure you have the correct version of Qt (>5.7) by using qmake --version. For exemple, if you have installed Qt from ppa:beineri, you will find it under /opt/qt57/bin/qmake. Then launch the compilation from FastQC folder as follow.

 /opt/qt57/bin/qmake --version
 /opt/qt57/bin/qmake 
 make 
 sudo make install 

Usage

FastQt can analyse uncompress and compress fastq files. The following extensions are supported :

  • *.fastq
  • *.fastq.gz
  • *.fastq.xz
  • *.fastq.bz2

You can use FastQt as GUI application or as a Command Line Interface.

Some usage example :

fastqt file1.fastq # File is save in file1 directory
fastqt file1.fastq file2.fastq.gz file3.fastq.bzip # File save in file1 file 2 file3 directory
fastqt file1.fastq -o specific_path # Create specific directory for each file in specific_path
fastqt file1.fastq -t 2 # Fastqt run maximal two process this option is valid for GUI too
