Description: Krita is a program for sketching and painting, offering an end–to–end solution for creating digital painting files from scratch by masters.
Other: Windows download is available from here: http://www.kogmbh.com/download.html
Building instructions: http://community.kde.org/Calligra/Building_Calligra_on_Windows
The Windows build page specifically states
As such it would not see official release until such a time as it is officially supported by the Krita devs, and unless a developer takes a real interest in doing this there may be no point to even posting a development test of this app.
That was over a year ago. Per the download page (http://kritastudio.com/desktop.html) "The current stable release is 2.8.2." And it's quite good.
I have the current build on my dwv machine, and expect to o post it this weekend for testing.
As with some other apps I've been using lately, I'd love to see Krita added to PortableApps.
I've copied my local installation to a thumb drive and it works perfectly fine. However, since the executable resides in Krita\bin, the PortableApps.com Platform doesn't see it.
You should look at what PortableApps is...Look at creating a launcher...Look at placing things in proper format then your goal is easily achieved

I find it very interesting. I'll have a look at it this evening and may do a development test later
depp.jones et al,
I'm rebuilding my previous dev test using an up-to-date copy of Krita.
It should be up this evening.
[EDIT] Scratch that. I've got it built, but it's not quite working yet. I think I just need to set the working directory, which I'm going to try in the morning.
Thanks! I had a quick look yesterday, but wasn't able to pull the source code easily. I don't want to setup git just for that. Maybe linking to their site would be enough in this case.
Other calligra applications
is there a lot of work to make Flow as a portable App as you did for Krita ?
It is strange that the Calligra Team didn't made a portable realeas as the Libre Office did… every module would be useable as a standalone app, Krita and Flow has now equivalents by their own.
