QField is an open source project, licensed under the terms of the GPLv2 or later. This means that it is free to use and modify and will stay like that.

We are very happy if this app helps you to get your job done or in whatever creative way you may use it.

If you found it useful, we will be even happier if you could give something back. A couple of things you can do are

Build

For Android

Quick and dirty

Use the dockerized QField SDK.

cd QField

git submodule init
git submodule update

docker run -v $(pwd):/usr/src/qfield docker.io/opengisch/qfield-sdk /usr/src/qfield/scripts/docker-build.sh --rm

This will put the apk into a subfolder build-docker/out/build/outputs/apk

Go the hard way

Build OSGeo4A

cd QField

git submodule init
git submodule update

cp config.pri.default config.pri
# Edit config.pri

The advantage of this is, you will be able to build and deploy directly from QtCreator.

For Desktop

  • Get QGIS 2.99 (3.0) development libraries.
cd QField
git submodule init
git submodule update

cp config.pri.default config.pri
# Edit config.pri
  • open QField.pro with QtCreator (installed during OSGeo4A installation)
  • hit build

On Mac

Building on a Mac requires some adjustments:

  1. In Qt Creator > Projects > Run >
  • Check "Use debug version of frameworks"
  • In Run Environment, add QGIS frameworks by editing following variables (Homebrew path might require adjustments):
    • DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH add :/usr/local/Cellar/qgis3-dev/2.99/QGIS.app/Contents/Frameworks
    • DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH add :/usr/local/Cellar/qgis3-dev/2.99/QGIS.app/Contents/Frameworks/qgis_core.framework/Versions/Current
  1. If you get the error invalid version number in '-mmacosx-version-min=', you might need to modify some Qt file. In /usr/local/Cellar/qt/5.10.1/mkspecs/features/mac/default_post.prf, hardcode the minimum deployment target by setting version_min_flag = -m$${version_identifier}-version-min=10.10 Or by running gsed -i "s/version_min_flag = -m\$\${version_identifier}-version-min=\$\$deployment_target/version_min_flag = -m\$\${version_identifier}-version-min=10\.10/" /usr/local/Cellar/qt/5.10.1/mkspecs/features/mac/default_post.prf
