4.3.3. Description file schema

Framework and Module files are simple textfiles with the file extensions .framework or .module, depending on their type. The file contents are similar, but some elements are specific for Franeworks or Modules, e.g. only modules can have an element of the type Feed.
A Framework file may look like this:
# The KDE4 base libraries

ID: KDELibs4
Version: shell$ kde4-config --version
 prefix$ "KDE: "
Binaries: kde4-config
 kde-open
ExtraLibSearchPath: %SYS_LIB%/kde4
Libraries: kio_file.so
 libkdeui.so.5
 libsoprano.so.4
 libthreadweaver.so.4
 libsolid.so.4
The ID element defines an unique identifier for this component. Frameworks IDs start with an upper-cased letter, while Modules are lower-cased.
