KDE Frameworks - Libraries for all Qt users.

2014-06-10 15:00..15:55 in Platform 1

With over 15 years of experience building a desktop on top of Qt, KDE has built up a massive amount of Qt based libraries. We have libraries for tasks ranging from extracting zip archives to polkit to handling emoticons.

The aim of Frameworks is to split our libraries into small modular components that can be easily used by anyone, picking out only the parts they need. Frameworks targets not only KDE's traditional desktop but also independent software developers (commercial or open source), mobile vendors and of course other desktops.

In this talk I will describe some of the more interesting frameworks, and show how and why you should consider using them in your project.
