I'm interested in developing for the KDE project, but I'm not sure what development environment or toolchain to use.

Which toolchain is recommended for KDE-focused development?

KDevelop is a good choice. You can also have a look at Qt Creator. If you want something lighter, have a look at Kate.

There is no mandatory development environment though: many KDE developers also use Vim, Emacs or XEmacs for example.


This is a good question, and I'm sure the KDE community would love to have help. I'd suggest looking on the kde.org website. bertmanphx


KDevelop is a quality IDE, with built-in support for KDE/Qt projects.
