qbittorrent-nox-static

Codacy Badge CodeFactor matrix multi build and release Debian Based CI

Summary

The qbittorrent-nox-static project is a bash build script that compiles a static qbittorrent-nox binary using the latest available dependencies from their source. These statically linked binaries can run on any matching CPU architecture and are not OS specific. This means you can run a x86_64 Alpine edge build on any Linux based OS of like CentOS | Fedora | OpenSuse | Debian Stretch | Ubuntu Xenial and more.

Documentation

WSL2

🟢 These static builds can be used on WSL2 and accessed via localhost:8080 using the download instructions below

chmod 700 ~/bin/qbittorrent-nox

ICU builds

Each build has two versions due to how qtbase builds when it detects ICU .

🟢 The iconv / non ICU build can be considered the default build.

ICU replaces iconv if detected when qtbase is built and doubles the static build size due to the ICU libraries being linked into the final static binary.

🔵 When not using ICU everything is built against iconv

🟠 ICU builds have nothing to do with performance.

The reason I do two builds is that ICU is an automated build flag preference for QT (and boost when I was building that) and I considered that it may one day be a default or only option and ICU seems to be the preferred choice for this kind of library. So it's really not a critical option but more of a choice.

🔵 ICU is a preferred build path automatically chosen by the programs built if it is present on the system.

You can pick either version you want, if it works then just enjoy it. The only difference you may experience is how the WebUi displays Unicode characters.

Libtorrent v2 builds

🟠 Libtorrent v1.2 is currently the main branch supported by qBittorrent

These are released as pre releases until qBittorrent officially adopts libtorrent v2 as the default version. Once v2 is the default I will switch them around on future releases.

You can view the pre releases and tags here.

Cmake builds

Cmake builds where libtorrent and qbittorrent are compiled using cmake and ninja are available

🟠 Cmake builds do not get stripped (debug symbols). Use cmake builds for stacktrace / debugging features built into qbittorrent.

Libtorrent v2 + QT6 + Qbittorrent using cmake

🟢 The script is ready to build using cmake and is QT6 ready. As soon as qbittorrrent has official support this script can build it.
