KDEApps1: A First Look at KDE Community Applications

When we talk about GNU / Linux and its User Communities or Desktop Environments inevitably they will always stand out 2, which are not only large but very productive in terms of applications developed for our Free and open operating systems.

One is the "GNOME Community" and another the "KDE Community". And in this first review "(KDEApps1)" we will start with a first look at the existing ones official applications to the "KDE Community", starting with those in the field of Software development.

On official applications to the "GNOME Community" we have also commented before. Not only individually but many of their projects and initiatives. Being one of them, addressed in our previous related post whose link we will leave immediately below, in case some wish to consult it:

"A project that seeks to improve the development and growth of applications and libraries to expand the GNOME Desktop Environment ecosystem. Hence, GNOME CIRCLE stands for good software developed and available for the GNOME platform. Not only the best applications and libraries for GNOME, but it also seeks to support independent developers using GNOME technologies." GNOME CIRCLE: Applications and Libraries Project for GNOME

Development - KDE Applications (KDEApps1)

In this area of Software development"KDE Community" has officially developed 19 applications of which we will briefly mention and comment on the first 10, and we will only mention the remaining 9:

Top 10 apps

  1. Cervisia: A friendly version control system interface. It is intended to implement CVS and other version control system programs using a unified interface, providing conflict resolution, history and difference viewers, status of working copy files, and implementation of most of the functions of version control.
  2. Clazy: A clang compiler plugin that issues warnings related to good Qt practices.
  3. ELF Dissector: A useful Inspector for ELF binaries, especially when you need to do tasks such as Inspect back and forth dependencies on library and symbols, ELF file size performance analysis, and more.
  4. Kirigami gallery: A graphical elements explorer for Kirigami, which is a KDE framework built to create convergent applications, that is, applications whose interface can be adapted to touch and desktop environments.
  5. heaptrack: Software utility that tracks all memory allocations and annotates these events with stack traces so that you can use dedicated tools that allow you to interpret free storage memory performance analysis.
  6. KAppTemplate: Useful application to get started quickly using existing templates that provide basic code that is often written repeatedly and correct structure.
  7. KCachegrind: Performance analysis data visualization tool used to determine the parts of a program that consume the most time during execution.
  8. KDebugSettings (KDebug Preferences): Allows you to choose the QLoggingCategory that is displayed. QLoggingCategory displays messages from applications on the console.
  9. kdesrc-build: Tool that allows you to easily compile KDE from your source code repositories.
  10. kdevn: Subversion client that uses the native Subversion development API instead of just parsing the tool's output from the command line, as most clients do.

Other existing apps

Other apps developed in this field of Software development by the "KDE Community" are:

  • KDevelop: Integrated development environment
  • KDiff3: Interface for diff / patch
  • KImageMapEditor: HTML Image Map Editor
  • Compare: Diff / Patch interface
  • KUIViewer: Qt Designer UI File Viewer
  • Lokalize: Computer-assisted translation system
  • Massif-Visualizer: Analyzer interface
  • OSM interior plans for KDE: OSM interior plans
  • Umbrella: UML Modeler

KDE Applications: Powerful, Cross-platform, and for Everyone

"Use KDE software to surf the web, stay in touch with colleagues, friends, and family, manage your files, enjoy music and videos, and be creative and productive at work. The KDE community develops and maintains more than 200 applications that work on any Linux desktop, and often on other platforms as well."

Summary: Various publications

Your Order

In short, about this first review "(KDEApps1)" of all existing ones official applications to the "KDE Community", in which we have specifically addressed and made known those of the field of Software development, we trust that it will serve to publicize a little more the robust and fabulous software toolkit how beautiful and hardworking Linuxera Community offers us.

We hope that this publication will be very useful for the entire «Comunidad de Software Libre y Código Abierto» and of great contribution to the improvement, growth and diffusion of the ecosystem of applications available for «GNU/Linux». And do not stop sharing it with others, on your favorite websites, channels, groups or communities of social networks or messaging systems.
