🛠 How to compile the desktop client
📝 Step by step instructions
Clone the repo and create build directory
$ git clone https://github.com/nextcloud/desktop.git $ cd desktop $ mkdir build $ cd build
Compile and install
For development reasons it is better to install the client on user space
instead on the global system. For example you could use in the next
~/.local/ in a linux system. If
you want to install system wide you could use
$ cmake "-GVisual Studio 15 2017 Win64" .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path-to-install-folder/ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DNO_SHIBBOLETH=1 -DQTKEYCHAIN_LIBRARY=/path-to-qt5keychain-folder/lib64/libqt5keychain.so -DQTKEYCHAIN_INCLUDE_DIR=/path-to-qt5keychain-folder/include/qt5keychain/ -DOPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=/path-to-openssl-folder/ -DOPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=path-to-openssl-folder/include -DOPENSSL_LIBRARIES=path-to-openssl-folder/lib $ make install
$ cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path-to-install-folder/ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DNO_SHIBBOLETH=1 -DPng2Ico_EXECUTABLE=/path-to-install-png2ico/png2ico.exe -DQTKEYCHAIN_LIBRARY=/path-to-qt5keychain-folder/lib/qt5keychain.lib -DQTKEYCHAIN_INCLUDE_DIR=/path-to-qt5keychain-folder/include/qt5keychain/ -DOPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=/path-to-openssl-folder/ -DOPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=path-to-openssl-folder/include -DOPENSSL_LIBRARIES=path-to-openssl-folder/lib $ cmake --build . --config Debug --target install
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path-to-install-folder/ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DNO_SHIBBOLETH=1 -DQTKEYCHAIN_LIBRARY=/path-to-qt5keychain-folder/lib/libqt5keychain.dylib -DQTKEYCHAIN_INCLUDE_DIR=/path-to-qt5keychain-folder/include/qt5keychain/ -DOPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=/path-to-openssl-folder/ -DOPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=path-to-openssl-folder/include -DOPENSSL_LIBRARIES=path-to-openssl-folder/lib $ make install

📝 Source code
The Nextcloud Desktop Client is developed in Git.

However, the authoritative repository maintained by the developers is located at https://github.com/nextcloud/desktop.
