Persistent platform-independent application settings.


KConfig provides an advanced configuration system. It is made of two parts: KConfigCore and KConfigGui.

KConfigCore provides access to the configuration files themselves. It features:

  • Code generation: describe your configuration in an XML file, and use kconfig_compiler to generate classes that read and write configuration entries.
  • Cascading configuration files (global settings overridden by local settings).
  • Optional shell expansion support (see docs/options.md).
  • The ability to lock down configuration options (see docs/options.md).

KConfigGui provides a way to hook widgets to the configuration so that they are automatically initialized from the configuration and automatically propagate their changes to their respective configuration files.
