Building on Linux
Prerequisites and Dependancies
You will need:
The Qt 5.x libraries development packages, including Webkit (or Webengine, but Webkit is still the default. See below for how to use Webengine), Network and Script, which sometimes come in different packages.
The Qt 'qmake' tool for the same version.
jsoncpp (https://github.com/open-source-parsers/jsoncpp). This is packaged as libjsoncpp-dev on Debian.
Only for building from git source, and for libupnpp: the autotools (autoconf, automake, libtool).
Extract the source for libupnpp and upplay, use the following procedures:
cd libnpupnp-x.y.z ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
cd libupnpp-x.y.z ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
cd upplay-x.y.z qmake make sudo make install
And you should now be able to upplay
The above examples are for source extracted from tar release files. For git source, you need to adjust the names of the top directories, and use the following command before the libupnpp 'configure':
Building on Mac OS X
Thanks to Jacques Distler for providing the procedure:
|for libupnpp versions 0.16.0 and earlier and upplay versions 1.2.11 and earlier, you will need to unset libupnpp_la_LDFLAGS in the 'Makefile' before building libupnpp, and add -lupnp to LINK in the upplay 'Makefile'. These should be fixed in later versions.|
Install QT. We used to rely on Fink to do this, but it is now preferable to use the qt.io builds. Get Qt from https://www.qt.io/download and follow the installation instructions. You just need the base Desktop Qt package.
The above does not include Qt Webkit any more. You can get it from https://github.com/annulen/webkit/releases
Build and install the jsconcpp library
cd [distribution directory] mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON -G "Unix Makefiles" .. make sudo make install
Install libupnp. Extract the source code, then:
cd [distribution directory] ./configure make sudo make install
Install libupnpp. Extract the source code, then:
cd [distribution directory] CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib \ upnp_CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include upnp_LIBS=-L/usr/local/lib \ ./configure --libdir=/usr/local/lib --includedir=/usr/local/include make sudo make install
Install Upplay. Extract the source code, then:
cd [distribution directory] /path/to/Qt/5.12.1/clang_64/bin/qmake PREFIX=/usr/local make sudo make install
Finally, install a link in the usual 'Applications' folder:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/upplay.app /Applications/upplay.app
Building with Webengine
To build with webengine, one manual edit must be performed before running qmake: edit upplay.pro and uncomment the "WEBPLATFORM = webengine" line.
For versions older than 1.3.9, another thing needed to be done: - Copy dirbrowser/dirbrowser.ui.webengine to dirbrowser/dirbrowser.ui
