Requirements

Build

Step 1

You need to configure CMake first and the command is slightly different for all the platforms:

Windows

Change the path in variables with the correct directories of the requirements.

cmake -B build_dir -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/path/to/Qt/version/msvc2019_64 -DLIBCAESIUM_LIB_DIR=/libcaesium/dir/lib -DEXIV2_LIB_DIR=/exiv2/dir/lib -DEXIV2_INCLUDE_DIR=/exiv2/dir/exiv2/include -DWINSPARKLE_INCLUDE_DIR=/winsparke/release/dir
MacOS

Change the path in variables with the correct directories of the requirements.

cmake -B build_dir -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/path/to/Qt/version/macos -DLIBCAESIUM_LIB_DIR=/libcaesium/dir/lib -DEXIV2_LIB_DIR=/exiv2/dir/lib -DEXIV2_INCLUDE_DIR=/exiv2/dir/exiv2/include -DSPARKLE_INCLUDE_DIR=/Library/Frameworks/Sparkle.framework/Headers -DLIBSSH_INCLUDE_DIR=/libssh/dir/include
Linux

Make sure you have all the requirements installed by you own package manager

cmake -B build_dir -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/path/to/Qt/version/gcc_64 -DLIBCAESIUM_LIB_DIR=/libcaesium/dir/lib
Step 2

Then you can build with

cmake --build build_dir --config Release --target caesium_image_compressor

Translate

The first version of Caesium had a lot of community made translations, but this new release has a whole new set of strings and no old translations can be used anymore.
You can help translate by opening the resources/i18n/caesium_en_US.ts with QtLinguist or any XML editor. Rename it to your language (e.g. caesium_it_IT.ts) and translate all the sentences. Then you can start a pull request with your translated file.
You can use this pull request as an example.
