Install Packages

The easiest way to install and get started developing with KDE Frameworks is to install pre-built packages. For details of Linux distributions which do so see the Get KDE Software on Your Linux distro wiki page.

Source Install and Use

You can compile Frameworks yourself to include them in your applications. See the Build instructions on our developer wiki.

The KDE Frameworks API Reference lists the Frameworks, documents their Tiers which indicate the compile-time dependencies, and Types which indicate the run-time dependencies. It has complete API documentation and example code so you can easily make use of these Frameworks in your Qt applications.
