HI Kevin, yes; I've built KDE/KDevelop before. Will the AppImage need any other libraries (KF5, etc)?

Did you build KDevelop yourself before? Anyhow, the latest version of KDevelop 
(5.1.2 at this point) should be good to go for this distro.

The easiest and quickest solution would be to go with the AppImage we provide:

Just download, make it executable, run.

For compiling yourself (if you really want to):

If there are no packages for KF5/Qt5 for that system I'd recommend trying 
Craft (a user space package manager) for building all the dependencies on your 

We're still lacking documentation how to install Craft on Linux, but you can 
follow the instructions for macOS at this point.

After setup, all you need to do is:
  craft kdevelop
I've never tested it on CentOS myself, but it's worth trying. If you 
experience any problems please join the #kdevelop IRC channel on Freenode and 
we can try to help.

Definitely not, I wouldn't go that route.
