πŸ›  How to compile the desktop client

πŸ— System requirements includes OpenSSL 1.1.x, QtKeychain, Qt 5.x.x and zlib.

πŸ“ Step by step instructions

Clone the repo and create build directory
$ git clone
$ 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 instructions path-to-install-folder/ as ~/.local/ in a linux system. If you want to install system wide you could use /usr/local or /opt/nextcloud/.

$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path-to-install-folder/ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DNO_SHIBBOLETH=1 -DQTKEYCHAIN_LIBRARY=/path-to-qt5keychain-folder/lib64/ -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
Mac OS
$ 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
