KF5 in Yocto

KDE recently released the first version of KDE Frameworks 5, or shorter KF5. This is a set of add on modules extending and improving Qt, forming the base on which the Plasma Desktop is built. The nice thing is that KF5 is very modular and very reuseable.

Recently I’ve spent some time working with Yocto (yes, the series will continue – I just need time to do a couple of clean builds). So, I thought this was the perfect little summer vacation project for me. So, the plan is to package one module a day of KF5 for Yocto. The layer resides on github as meta-kf5.

This is a release early, release often project, so I’ve just gotten KAchive and ECM integrated. You can follow the progress from the project status page.
