Summary

KDE Connect is an application to sync your connected devices. Some of the features of KDE Connect include:-

  • sync mobile and desktop device notifications
  • send and receive files between devices
  • mobile device as a presentation remote
  • clipboard on both devices
  • mobile device as keyboard and/or mouse.


KDE Connect also supports plugins that extend the utility of KDE Connect, like- pausing the music or other playing media on a desktop if the mobile device starts ringing, preventing desktop from going to sleep if a device is connected, et al. All these plugins can be fully controlled by the user.

KDE Connect for Windows currently builds using Craft, but has a lot of problems and is currently not suitable for an official release. This project aims to release a port for Windows OS, by fixing the existing plugins accordingly to also support Windows OS, adding system integrations and publishing the official build to the Windows Store.

By the end of this project, we should have a release-able installer shipped to the Windows Store for review.
