Standalone Builds


It must be possible to build frameworks standalone. This is a necessary step before we can split frameworks in their own git repositories.

The goal of this epic is to ensure all frameworks currently split in the tier1, tier2, tier3 and tier4 repositories build standalone.

Building a framework standalone

To test if a framework builds standalone, one must run cmake pointing to the framework dir, as opposed to running it on the kdelibs top-level dir. Here is how one can build ki18n standalone:

 mkdir build
 cd build
 cmake <relevant-cmake-options> /path/to/kdelibs/tier2/ki18n
 make install


Superbuild is a tool provided by kdelibs to make it easy to build all frameworks standalone, you can learn more about it from its README file.

Frameworks which build standalone must be added to kdelibs/superbuild/CMakeLists.txt.
