NOTE: Please refer to Get It for up-to-date Windows versions
It took some time but here is now an installer for Kate on Windows.
First the proof 🙂
There are still some things that needs fixing. The current installer is built from git master and not from released packages so the translation stuff hat you usually get with the release packages are missing. So only partially translated. Another feature that I’m still missing is the spell-check. I need to still add a/hspell and language dictionaries to get that to work.
You can use a plain Qt and current KDE Frameworks & Kate master to get that running. Guess the next goal would be to get KIO working without patching Qt, lets see how much work that is.
P.S. With the guide in mac.txt you should be able to try out how to port other KDE based applications, too, and get a application bundle, as most stuff should be available now, for the average application. How to use some bundled Breeze icon set can be found here, just call code like that after QApplication is constructed:
