Snapshots of Kexi aka nightly builds.

Linux

So called Nightly builds listed here:

These are distribution-independent Flatpak repositories. How to use Flatpak is documented at https://flatpak.org.

Short Flatpak How To

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists kde http://distribute.kde.org/flatpak-apps-testing
  • (one time) to install stable version of KEXI:
flatpak install kde org.kde.kexi-stable
  • (one time) to install experimental (development) version of KEXI:
flatpak install kde org.kde.kexi
  • to run KEXI (either version, you can make a shortcut or script for easy use):
flatpak --filesystem=$HOME run org.kde.kexi-stable
flatpak --filesystem=$HOME run org.kde.kexi

(--filesystem=$HOME gives KEXI access to your home folder, use --filesystem=/ to give access everywhere; without --filesystem KEXI will be run securely without access to your files)

  • To update KEXI (either version, no need to uninstall first):
flatpak update kde org.kde.kexi-stable
flatpak update kde org.kde.kexi

Note
You can use any Flatpak front end app such as "Discover" KDE app to add repository, install apps and perform updates: https://userbase.kde.org/Discover#How_to_handle_repositories


Windows

So called Nightly builds. Pick one of them:


In the Last Successful Artifacts section of the above pages click either:

  • kexi-*******.7z for a 7z archive and when it downloads just uncompress it (using 7-Zip program) to your folder of choice and run kexi-***.exe program.

Notes:

  • This is a 64 bit application requiring Windows 7 (64 bit) or newer. XP not supported (e.g. due to Qt's requirements).
  • You can uncompress as many versions of KEXI from the 7z archive at the same time as you want.
  • You can install as many minor versions of KEXI using the installer as you want, e.g. 3.2, 3.3, 3.4...
