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.
🔵 Visit the documentation for in depth information on using this project.
🟢 These static builds can be used on WSL2 and accessed via
localhost:8080 using the download instructions below

Each build has two versions due to how
qtbase builds when it detects
iconv / non
ICU build can be considered the default build.
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
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 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 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.
🟢 The script is ready to build using cmake and is QT6 ready. As soon as qbittorrrent has official support this script can build it.
