RKWard development source repository / development snapshots
Instructions to track the most recent development version in our source repository (git). This is of interest both to people wanting to be on the bleeding edge of RKWard development, and to people wanting to contribute patches.
Alternatives: Daily builds
Sometimes all you want is to test a relatively recent development snapshot, easily.
- For Ubuntu users, a variety of PPAs is available at https://launchpad.net/~rkward-devel, including the following daily build archives: - KF5 version of RKWard
- For Windows users, daily builds can be found at https://binary-factory.kde.org/view/Windows%2064-bit/job/RKWard_Nightly_win64/
- Daily builds for MacOS are at: https://binary-factory.kde.org/view/MacOS/job/RKWard_Nightly_macos/
In addition to the requirements listed on the Building_RKWard_From_Source page, you will need a git client.
Checking out the current Git sources
For anoynmous (read-only) access, use
$ git clone https://invent.kde.org/education/rkward.git rkward_devel
This will download the development sources to a directory called rkward_devel.
Proceed with compilation / installation as usual (see Building RKWard From Source). Make sure the path provided to cmake is correct (for example, depending on where you create the build directory, ’../rkward’ may be appropriate instead of ’..’).
Staying up to date
To update your working copy to the most recent changes, go to that directory, and run
$ git pull --rebase
After this, generally only the
$ sudo make install
steps are needed (less, if you use some advanced tricks).
