July 7th, 2014. The KDE Community is proud to announce KDE Frameworks 5.0. Frameworks 5 is the next generation of KDE libraries, modularized and optimized for easy integration in Qt applications. The Frameworks offer a wide variety of commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested libraries with friendly licensing terms. There are over 50 different Frameworks as part of this release providing solutions including hardware integration, file format support, additional widgets, plotting functions, spell checking and more. Many of the Frameworks are cross platform and have minimal or no extra dependencies making them easy to build and add to any Qt application.
The KDE Frameworks represent an effort to rework the powerful KDE Platform 4 libraries into a set of independent, cross platform modules that will be readily available to all Qt developers to simplify, accelerate and reduce the cost of Qt development. The individual Frameworks are cross-platform and well documented and tested and their usage will be familiar to Qt developers, following the style and standards set by the Qt Project. Frameworks are developed under the proven KDE governance model with a predictable release schedule, a clear and vendor neutral contributor process, open governance and flexible licensing (LGPL).
The Frameworks have a clear dependency structure, divided into Categories and Tiers. The Categories refer to runtime dependencies:
- Functional elements have no runtime dependencies.
- Integration designates code that may require runtime dependencies for integration depending on what the OS or platform offers.
- Solutions have mandatory runtime dependencies.
The Tiers refer to compile-time dependencies on other Frameworks. Tier 1 Frameworks have no dependencies within Frameworks and only need Qt and other relevant libraries. Tier 2 Frameworks can depend only on Tier 1. Tier 3 Frameworks can depend on other Tier 3 Frameworks as well as Tier 2 and Tier 1.
The transition from Platform to Frameworks has been in progress for over 3 years, guided by top KDE technical contributors. Learn more about Frameworks 5 in this article from last year.
There are over 50 Frameworks currently available. Browse the complete set in the online API documentation. Below an impression of some of the functionality Frameworks offers to Qt application developers.
KArchive offers support for many popular compression codecs in a self-contained, featureful and easy-to-use file archiving and extracting library. Just feed it files; there’s no need to reinvent an archiving function in your Qt-based application!
ThreadWeaver offers a high-level API to manage threads using job- and queue-based interfaces. It allows easy scheduling of thread execution by specifying dependencies between the threads and executing them satisfying these dependencies, greatly simplifying the use of multiple threads.
KConfig is a Framework to deal with storing and retrieving configuration settings. It features a group-oriented API. It works with INI files and XDG-compliant cascading directories. It generates code based on XML files.
Solid offers hardware detection and can inform an application about storage devices and volumes, CPU, battery status, power management, network status and interfaces, and Bluetooth. For encrypted partitions, power and networking, running daemons are required.
KI18n adds Gettext support to applications, making it easier to integrate the translation workflow of Qt applications in the general translation infrastructure of many projects.
바이너리 패키지 설치
리눅스 환경에서는 KDE 프레임워크를 사용하고 있는 배포판의 패키지 관리자로 설치하는 것을 추천합니다. 리눅스 배포판별 KDE 소프트웨어 설치 위키 페이지.
소스 코드에서 컴파일
소스 코드에서 빌드하는 작업은 기본적인 cmake .; make; make install 명령으로 가능합니다. 단일 티어 1 프레임워크를 컴파일 때에는 가장 간단한 방법입니다. 프레임워크 개발에 기여하거나 전체 프레임워크 개발 작업을 추적하고 싶다면 kdesrc-build 사용을 추천합니다. 프레임워크 5.0에는 Qt 5.0 이상이 필요합니다.
KDE는 개인의 시간과 노력을 기부하는 것으로 존재하고 성장하는 자유 소프트웨어 커뮤니티입니다. KDE는 코딩, 버그 수정 및 보고, 문서 작성, 번역, 프로모션, 금전적 기여 등 다양한 자원 봉사자와 기여자를 찾고 있습니다. 모든 기여를 환영합니다. 더 많은 정보를 보려면 KDE 지원하기 페이지를 확인하십시오. Join the Game을 통해서 KDE e.V.의 후원 회원이 될 수도 있습니다.
