Valentina is a cross-platform patternmaking program which allows designers
to create and model patterns of clothing. This software allows pattern
creation, using either standard sizing tables or an individual’s set of
measurements. It blends new technologies with traditional methods to create
a unique pattern making tool.
The standalone binary packages support the following platforms:
Windows XP SP2 (32-bit) or later
Ubuntu Linux 14.04 (32-bit/64-bit) or later
OpenSUSE 13.02 (32-bit/64-bit) or later
Fedora 24 (32-bit/64-bit) or later
Mac OS X 10.8 (64-bit) or later
Building the sources requires Qt 5.2.0 or later.
* Qt 5.2.0 or later (On Unix development packages needed)
* mercurial (only for working with repository)
* On Unix:
- g++ (at least GCC 4.7 is needed and GCC 4.8 is recommended) or
clang (clang 3.4 recommended)
- xpdf package (tool pdftops).
* On Windows:
- Xpdf is an open source viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF)
files. Website http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/. Put tool pdftops.exe
in the same directory with Valentina's binary file.
The installed toolchains have to match the one Qt was compiled with.
You can build Valentina with
qmake ..\Valentina.pro -r CONFIG+=noDebugSymbols CONFIG+=no_ccache
make (or mingw32-make or nmake or jom, depending on your platform)
Note: On some platforms e.g. Fedora, all Qt-tools come as qmake-qt5
etc. In this case you should install qtchooser. This wrapper
resolves the Qt version with respect to QT_SELECT. So run
prior to qmake. You will not come along with just using qmake-qt5
Note:In order to build and use Valentina, the PATH environment variable
needs to be extended:
PATH - to locate qmake, moc and other Qt tools
This is done by adding c:\Qt\%VERSION%\bin to the PATH variable.
For newer versions of Windows, PATH can be extended through the
Control Panel|System|Advanced|Environment variables menu.
You may also need to ensure that the locations of your compiler and
other build tools are listed in the PATH variable. This will depend on
your choice of software development environment.
Default prefix for command "make install" is /usr. For using another
prefix build with qmake command:
qmake PREFIX=/usr/local PREFIX_LIB=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu Valentina.pro -r CONFIG+=noDebugSymbols CONFIG+=no_ccache
where /usr/local is a new prefix for installation binary files and /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu is new prefix for install libraries.
