Tämä lohko sisältää tietoja työkaluista KDE-kehitykseen.

Virheenjäljitys ja analyysi

Ohjelman analysointiin käytettävien työkalujen luettelo. Tämä sisältää esimerkiksi debuggerit ja profiloijat.

Valgrind auttaa löytämään muistivuotoja ja alustamattomia muistilohkoja. Lisäominaisuuksia ovat profiloija ja paljon muuta. Valgrind on yksi suosituimmista kehitystyökaluista!
The GNU Project Debugger (GDB)
GDB auttaa lähdekoodin virheenjäljityksessä. Koska GDB on kehittynyt vuosien mittaan, on suositeltavaa käyttää versiota 6.x. Grafiikkaedustaohjelmia on saatavilla (katso alla). Katso myös virheenjäljityksen opastusohje Virheenjäljitys GDB:llä.
KDbg on graafinen käyttöliittymä GDB:lle, jossa voidaan asettaa pysäytyskohtia, askeltaa koodin lävitse jne.


KDevelop is an excellent IDE for developing KDE and Qt C++ applications. It includes a an integrated debugger, a powerful editor with syntax highlighting, a Project wizard to create applications from templates, the automake/autoconf gunk, and even the class documentation. Further details can also be found in the KDevelop wiki.
Instructions on how to use KDevelop with KDE 4 applications is available at this page
Qt Designer
With Trolltechs Qt Designer it is easy to layout user interfaces like buttons and checkboxes. Additional features are undo/redo, checking accelerator conflicts etc. Qt Designer allows even non-programmers to help design KDE dialogs. Further details can be found in the tutorial Using Qt Designer and in the Qt documentation.
MS Visual Studio® Express 2005 IDE (Windows only)
Visual C++® 2005 Express Edition [1] is the free version of the Microsoft Visual Studio 2000 compiler from Microsoft, which is official supported by Trolltech since QT 4.3.2 and a choice for compiling qt and kde applications on windows.

Lokalisointi (i18n) työkalut

KBabel is a set of tools for editing and managing gettext PO files. Its main part is a powerful and comfortable PO file editor which features full navigation capabilities, full editing functionality, possibility to search for translations in different dictionaries, spell and syntax checking, showing diffs and many more.
Also included is a "Catalog Manager", a file manager view which helps keeping an overview of PO files. Last but not least it includes a standalone dictionary application as an additional possibility to access KBabel's powerful dictionaries. KBabel will help you to translate fast and also keep consistent translations.
Dr. Klash
This little utility, once activated, can present a report about conflicting shortcuts in menus. Not only this is helpful for translators but also for developers. A little hand editing of `kde-config --localprefix`/share/config/kdeglobals activates this feature:

[Development] CheckAccelerators=F12 AutoCheckAccelerators=false AlwaysShowCheckAccelerators=false

Now pressing F12 will show a dialog containing which accelerators in the currently focussed interface conflict and provide suggestions for new accelerators. If no accelerators conflict or Dr. Klash has nothing to suggest, no popup dialog will not be displayed at all.
With AutoCheckAccelerators enabled the dialog will popup automatically if a conflict exists and AlwaysShowCheckAccelerators can force the dialog to always popup even if there are no conflicts to report.
The x-test language
This helper language serves as a debugging aid for people finding untranslated strings in applications. If you start your application with the "x-test" locale, all translated strings will appear with trailing and leading xx's. First you have to check out these "translations" from l10n-kde4/x-test and install them.
After you've built l10n-kde4/x-test and installed it, run your application using the "x-test" locale. This can be done by launching it from the command line like this:
> KDE_LANG=x-test kspread
This will start KSpread using the "x-test" locale no matter what your current language setting is. Look for strings that do not have the xx's. If xx's are missing from a string, it could be due to missing i18n calls or even missing or incorrectly generated .pot files. Consult the i18n tutorials for further information.
When checking for untranslated strings, be sure to check all the WhatsThis help and tooltips.

Tutkitaan .po-tiedostoja

You can look at the translated .po files to see if a string is present and has been translated. For example, here's a portion of l10n/de/messages/kdebase/konqueror.po:

msgid "&New Tab"
msgstr "Neues &Unterfenster"

The string to be translated is given on the msgid line. The translated string is on the msgstr line. Notice that the exact same string to translate came from and also from This saves the translators from having to translate the same identical string twice.

You can also use KBabel to examine .po files. KBabel is part of the kdesdk module.

More information on writing and translating documentation can be found on the l10n project site.
