How hard would it be to port Telepathy Morse to Sailfish?

How hard would it be to port Telepathy Morse to Sailfish so we have a native Telegram client?

The code is already written and is open source (https://github.com/TelepathyIM/telepathy-morse) and is also built using Qt, so would any of the Sailfish developers or power users know how this could be ported to Sailfish?

Thank you,
Dave

I believe the maintainer (Kaffeine) has already ported the project to Sailfish OS. See https://github.com/TelepathyIM/telepathy-morse/wiki/Sailfish-OS for building it yourself or you can install prebuild versions from the OBS, which goes something like this if I remember correctly:

  • Open the terminal on your device
  • devel-su # Become root
    ssu ar telepathy-testing-morse https://build.sailfishos.org/project/show/c:telepathy:testing:morse
    ssu ar telepathy-testing-mer-core https://build.sailfishos.org/project/show/c:telepathy:testing:mer-core
    pkcon refresh
    pkcon install telepathy-qt5 commhistory-daemon telegram-qt-qt5 telegram-qt-qt5-declarative sailfish-settings-accounts-extensions-telegram telepathy-morse
    

There’s also a Telegram group if you need any help or want to communicate with the developer.
