Chapter 1. Introduction

KAppTemplate generates KDE templates to help you start easily KDE programming.

KAppTemplate offers you a few basic templates projects and also picks up KDevelop templates if some are installed on your machine.

As default you will find:

  • A simple KDE 4 GUI template

  • A KDE 4 KPart template

  • A Qt4 main window based template

  • A PyQt4 application

  • A PyKDE4 application

  • A Ruby (korundum4) template

  • A plasma applet template

Answer the wizard questions on each page and generate your template.


A README file in each template will allow you to find out how to build the template. It will also give you links for tutorials related to the project. After the project is generated, KAppTemplate's job is finished and you are on your own to build it.
