Add qml plugins in wasm

  • Hello,

    I build my app for wasm with cmake.

    I obtain this error when I load in browser :
    qrc:/main.qml:21 module "QtQuick" is not installed

    I think what the plugin QtQuick is not in wasm file.
    How include qml plugin in wasm file ?
    Linking of lib*.a ? -> does not work
    In a resource .qrc ?
    With qmldir file and plugin.qmltypes ?

  • Did you compile Qt WebAssembly yourself, or are you using the WebAssembly binary package?

  • Yes, I compile Qt WebAssembly myself.

    I tried add qml plugin (qmldir, plugin.qmltypes, .a) in a directory 'imports' in qrc.
    In main.cpp, i added


    I obtain this error when i load in browser :

    qrc:/main.qml:21 module "QtQuick" plugin "qtquick2plugin" not found

    it going :)

    # configure index.html
    set(APPNAME "LiveTests")

  • Finnaly, i import qml plugin by use Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN in main.cpp

    #include <QtPlugin>

    However, I have a blank page :(

    I obtain this errors :

    Rules for selecting event targets in HTML5 API are changing: instead of using document.getElementById() that only can refer to elements by their DOM ID, new event target selection mechanism uses the more flexible function document.querySelector() that can look up element names, classes, and complex CSS selectors. Build with -s DISABLE_DEPRECATED_FIND_EVENT_TARGET_BEHAVIOR=1 to change to the new lookup rules. See https://github.com/emscripten-core/emscripten/pull/7977 for more details.
    TypeError: 'name' member of PermissionDescriptor 'clipboard-read' is not a valid value for enumeration PermissionName.
    TypeError: 'name' member of PermissionDescriptor 'clipboard-write' is not a valid value for enumeration PermissionName.

    Do you have any idea of these mistakes?

  • Success :)

    To remove clipboard error, i disabled clipboard in source code :

    void QWasmClipboard::initClipboardEvents()
        if (!hasClipboardApi)
        /*val permissions = val::global("navigator")["permissions"];
        val readPermissionsMap = val::object();
        readPermissionsMap.set("name", val("clipboard-read"));
        permissions.call<val>("query", readPermissionsMap);
        val writePermissionsMap = val::object();
        writePermissionsMap.set("name", val("clipboard-write"));
        permissions.call<val>("query", writePermissionsMap);*/
        hasClipboardApi = false;

    Clipboard permission is not managed on my firefox (63.0.3 64bit).

    And to the blank page, i used QQuickView with resizeMode at SizeRootObjectToView :

    QQuickView* view = new QQuickView();
