LibKVkontakte is a Qt5/KF5-based C++ library implementing job classes for asynchronous interation with the VK social networking site (

Project Status

The project is currently maintained by Alexander Potashev (aspotashev).

All 4.x.x releases (including the 4.10.0 release and all earlier ones made as part of digiKam SC) are ABI/API compatible between each other. The Qt4/KDELibs4-based branch is discontinued.


Some classes are documented in the code in a Doxygen style. For usage examples see unit tests (autotests/test_*.cpp in the repository) and the Vkontakte KIPI plugin (vkontakte/* in the kipi-plugins repository.)

How to collaborate

LibKVkontakte is a KDE project, so we use the usual ways to communicate to each other, and to work together.
