Kirigami is KDE’s lightweight user interface framework for mobile and convergent applications. It allows Qt developers to easily create applications that run on most major mobile and desktop platforms without modification (though adapted user interfaces for different form-factors are supported and recommended for optimal user experience). It extends the touch-friendly Qt Quick Controls with larger application building blocks, following the design philosophy laid out in the Kirigami Human Interface Guidelines.

Here are the most important links:

You can try out Kirigami in action on Android with the Kirigami Gallery app on Google Play.

When building Kirigami yourself, you can use the cmake option -DBUILD_EXAMPLES=ON to build the Kirigami Gallery.

If you're unfamiliar with CMake, the CMake Manual for Qt is a good starting point to learn more about it.
