It manages dependencies and builds libraries and applications from source, on Windows, Mac, Linux and FreeBSD.

It will work fine for most CMake based recipes but definitely cause problems with QMake based projects. You will of course also miss all patches we usually apply to Qt. This is only recommended when you know what you are doing and you won't get support for in our channel. To activate the SDK mode adapt the [QtSDK] section in your etc/kdesettings.ini to something like: [QtSDK] ## Whether to use prebuild Qt binaries. Enabled = True ## The path to the Qt sdk. Path = C:\Qt ## The version of Qt. Version = 5.9 ## The compiler version, if you are not sure what to use, have a look into the derectory set in QtSDK/Path. ## The compiler must be of the same type as General/KDECOMPILER. ## If you are using mingw please make sure you have installed the mingw using the Qt installer. Compiler = msvc2017_64 Troubleshooting If a package fails to build, you'll be greeted with something like: ... craft warning: while running make cmd: jom craft warning: Action: compile for libs/qt5/qtbase FAILED *** Craft all failed: all of libs/qtbase failed after 0:07:25 *** craft error: fatal error: package libs/qtbase all failed In order to figure out what failed, grep the command line output above for errors. Or have a look at the log file located in $HOME/.craft (%USERPROFILE%\.craft on Windows) which will contain much more details. Search for "error", or "error:" in the file.
