If you want to make tutorials, you can use our wiki tutorials page that is located here.

Manuals must be written using html using stylesheet (possible in future we will provide a standard stylesheet file).
You could send archive to contact at monkeystudio dot org with subjects "Manuals". We will review it and convert it to Qt Assistant documentation.


This page will help you set up a svn copy for building svn version of MkS.
It's split in two parts, first one for standard user and second one for team member.
The main repository is split in two parts, v1 for legacy MkS ( prior to 1.7.0 ) and v2 for 1.7.0 and next.
The v2 repository is split into three parts :

  • branches : Daily work is commit there, code always build but not always stable.
  • trunk : Once per month stable code is imported from branches.
