Build .apk without Qt Creator?
I have a project where I would like my server to be able to build a .apk file whenever I push changes to it. Do I need to have Qt Creator installed on my server, or is it possible to build the .apk without Qt Creator?
Qt Creator is not needed. You need the same Android tools as on your machine and that should suffice.
Yes, I would also believe I just need to run the correct scripts.
However, it seems as if this is not commonly done.
How are people building their runnables for different environments? This must be automised in the CI?
You have to check with the CI system you are using. They might already provide some walkthrough or maybe even some infrastructure for that.
Well, currently I don't have a CI. This is just a hobby project.
I'm just interested in learning how it's done.
I found some info regarding androiddeployqt which is probably a step in the right direction.
If I manage to build and apk manually using androiddeployqt I could after that create a script for it.
Is androiddeployqt the right way to start?
Yes it is. That's what Qt Creator uses.
