Nextcloud Desktop Client

The :computer: Nextcloud Desktop Client is a tool to synchronize files from Nextcloud Server with your computer.

Desktop Client on Mac OS]

:blue_heart: :tada: Contributing

:hammer_and_wrench: How to compile the desktop client

:building_construction: System requirements includes OpenSSL 1.1.x, QtKeychain, Qt 5.x.x and zlib.

:memo: Step by step instructions

Clone the repo and create build directory
$ git clone
$ cd desktop
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
Compile and install

:warning: For development reasons it is better to install the client on user space instead on the global system. Mixing up libs/dll’s of different version can lead to undefined behavior and crashes:

  • You could use the cmake flag CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX as ~/.local/ in a Linux system. If you want to install system wide you could use /usr/local or /opt/nextcloud/.

  • On Windows 10 $USERPROFILE refers to C:\Users\<USERNAME>.

Linux & Mac OS
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/nextcloud-desktop-client -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DNO_SHIBBOLETH=1
$ make install
$ cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$USERPROFILE\nextcloud-desktop-client -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DNO_SHIBBOLETH=1
$ cmake --build . --config Debug --target install

:information_source: More detailed instructions can be found at the Desktop Client Wiki.
