Introduction

Todo.

System Requirements

QtJsonDb is one of the addons of Qt 5, hence before building qtjsondb you need to build dependent modules - qtbase, qtxmlpatterns, qtjsbackend and qtdeclarative. See Building Qt 5 from Git for more information.

At this moment the only supported platforms for QtJsonDb are Linux and Mac OS X.

Linux/X11

QtJsonDb depends on libedit and libicu(optionally):

QtJsonDb dependencies on Ubuntu/Debian:

$ sudo apt-get install libedit-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libicu-dev

QtJsonDb dependencies on Mandriva/ROSA/Unity:

$ urpmi 'pkgconfig(libedit)'
$ urpmi 'pkgconfig(libicu)'

Mac OS X

QtJsonDb depends on libicu(optionally).

Via HomeBrew

You need to have HomeBrew installed at first.

$ brew install icu4c

Via MacPorts

$ port install icu

Getting the source code

First clone the QtJsonDb git repository(for example, under ~/dev/git):

git clone git://code.qt.io/qt/qtjsondb.git qtjsondb

Current temporary patch

Only for enable collation feature based on whether ICU header files are available or not on Mac.

Qmakeing and building

Now start to qmake and make a shadow build:

$ mkdir ~/build/qtjsondb
$ cd ~/build/qtjsondb
$ ~/build/qt5/qtbase/bin/qmake -o Makefile ~/dev/git/qtjsondb/qtjsondb.pro

If you have seen following output, then the ICU was enabled successfully:

Configuration tests:
 icu: yes
 libedit: yes

How to run examples

Launch jsondb daemon in a terminal(the first):

$ cd ~/dev/git/qtjsondb/examples/declarative
$ ~/build/qt5/qtbase/bin/jsondb

Run the example code in another terminal(the second):

$ cd ~/dev/git/qtjsondb/examples/declarative/simplelistmodel
$ ~/build/qt5/qtbase/bin/qmlscene ./simplelistmodel.qml

If want to clean the db files after running(in the first terminal):

$ cd ~/dev/git/qtjsondb/examples/declarative
$ rm *.db
