The Bundler

This class is meant to provide a non-GUI and class to manage KNS packages. It's meant to be used from application themselves.

  • extractTo(KUrl baseDir) Extracts (installs) the package into the given baseDir. It's not the directory where the package itself will be extracted, but the one called 'newstuff/' here.
  • KPluginInfo metadata() Returns a pluginInfo object. You can retrive most of the metadata from it.
  • QFile mapFile(QString filename)
  • bool initLayout(QString dir = "newstuff") Initializes the layout. It should be called only once, when app configuration files are created. It will use KStandardDirs::saveLocation() to create dirs. See the layout section for more informations.
