A few questions on valentina


Cool beans! Not sure how

We won’t be able to assist you with installing and learning SSH/HTTPS, Qt and Mercurial, as this would take many hours away from Valentina development. Please use their forums and support links for any difficulty or questions. It will take some time, and lots of internet queries, to become familiar with these tools.

Read the Valentina Overview:


Read about SSH and HTTPS here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Use+the+SSH+protocol+with+Bitbucket

Install Qt5.4 for Win7Pro 32 bit here:

Install Mercurial from here: https://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Download Good beginner tutorial http://hgbook.red-bean.com/read/a-tour-of-mercurial-the-basics.html

Then use SSH or HTTPS to download the Valentina code from Bitbucket here:

Use the ‘Clone’ link from the lefthand menu. When you get to that point, download the ‘develop’ branch.

See the ‘Compiling Valentina’ section here

We’re working on a new measurement standard at the moment. More info on this soon.

No. We’re working on developing the tools and measurements, this will come later.
