Nextcloud Desktop Client

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

Desktop Client on Windows

💙 🎉 Contributing

🛠 How to compile the desktop client

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

📝 Step by step instructions

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

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
$ make install
$ cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$USERPROFILE\nextcloud-desktop-client -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
$ cmake --build . --config Debug --target install

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