Guidelines and HOWTOs/Build from source/Mac

  • Install Qt (use the official Qt installer, recommended version Qt >= 5.6)
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
brew install cmake wget p7zip gettext ninja
  • Prepare some build directory in your home directory, here we assume:
mkdir ~/kf
  • Switch to this build dir
cd ~/kf
  • Get the unix3 branch of KDE emerge
git clone --branch unix3 kde:emerge
  • Copy Mac OS X config template to right location, should be OK to use out of the box
mkdir etc
cp emerge/kdesettings.mac etc/kdesettings.ini
  • Setup environment (path must contain your Qt install, here 5.7 default location and brew's gettext)
export PATH=/Users/cullmann/Qt5.7.0/5.7/clang_64/bin:/usr/local/Cellar/gettext/0.19.7/bin:$PATH
. emerge/kdeenv.sh
  • In this shell, now emerge is usable, e.g. to build Kate with all dependencies:
emerge kate
  • To create a app bundle (+ dmg file), you need to have the breeze-icons around:
emerge breeze-icons
  • To do deploy all things, unfortunately at the moment you need a patched macdeployqt. Example scripty for kate can be found on kate.git/mac/emerge-deploy.sh
