It is the easy way to build software.

The current version is 3.6. Download Python 3.6+ Setting up a powershell Powershell is required to be at least version 5.0. If you're running Windows 10 you most probably won't need to update Powershell. You can check the version with $PSVersionTable.PSVersion . Download Powershell Setting up a compiler Currently Craft supports both the MinGW and Microsoft Visual Studio (msvc) compiler. While MinGW can be installed by Craft, Visual Studio must be installed independently by the user. Direct X SDK If you are using the MinGW compiler, in order to compile the Qt5 qtbase package you will also need to install the Microsoft DirectX SDK. Make sure to open a new command line window after the installation for the environment variables to be set. Installing Craft Start a powershell environment. Allow execution of powershell scripts. Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope CurrentUser RemoteSigned Install Craft and folow the instructions iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/KDE/craft/master/setup/install_craft.ps1')) Using Craft To use Craft you need to start a Powershell window, point that to KDEROOT\craft and run the initalization script. For example: C:\KDEROOT\craft\kdeenv.ps1 This tells Craft about your environment settings (e.g. paths). It will load your configuration from KDEROOT\etc\kdesettings.ini. If there are any error messages Craft will not work as expected. The output should look similar to this one (of course with your paths): PS C:\kderoot\craft>.\kdeenv.ps1 KDEROOT : C:\kderoot\ KDECOMPILER : msvc2015 KDESVNDIR : C:\kderoot\download\svn KDEGITDIR : C:\kderoot\download\git DOWNLOADDIR : C:\kderoot\download PYTHONPATH : C:\kderoot\python PS C:\kderoot\> Common Craft commands Installing a package and its dependencies: Simply run craft packagename Updating an installed package: Once you have packagename built, type craft -i packagename to update packagename. Updating Craft:craft craft Advanced tips To build a non default version, append a line to kderoot/etc/kdesettings.ini of form: category/packagename = branch For example, to install master branch of kdevelop, the line to be appended should look like: extragear/kdevelop = master To find the category of the package you want to install, run this in powershell: craft --search packagename The second line of the output will be of form: category/packagename 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 %USERPROFILE%\.craft which will contain much more details. Search for "error", or "error:" in the file.
